Step 1 Prepare the stripes of green and gold corrugated paper and the silk ribbons as follows:
Step 2 Place the stripe of green corrugated paper around the paper towel roll, and secure both ends with a staple.
If preferred you can glue the ends but this is not necessary as the staples will not be seen when the rolls are assembled.
Step 3 Place the stripe of gold corrugated paper around the green roll, let it extend from the upper end, fit tightly and secure with a staple.
Step 4 Place the ribbon around the roll and glue the edges in place.
Step 5 Slide the gold paper ring to the center of the green roll.
Step 6 Cut a circle of cardboard slightly smaller than the foot of the plate.
Step 7 Place 5 rolls on the table close together, seams inward, apply strong glue to their edges, place the cardboard circle on top and press until the glue dries.
Step 8 Place a plate on top.
Step 9 Insert each butterfly's wire to its place behind the metallic gold ring.
Step 10 Arrange candies neatly on the plate.
Please note: The centerpiece will be stable enough for display purpose only. Make sure it is not touched roughly to avoid collapsing. To get a better stability the rolls can be filled with some weight, but this is not really necessary for the short time the piece will be displayed.
