- Using a 1 1/4" diameter circle, trace circles above and inbetween previously traced circles. With a pencil, draw two spirals inside the previously traced circles.
- Using SG-409 Bright Green, outline the largest (1 3/4") circles. Also apply dots around the large, indented circle on the lid of MB-1410 Button box.
