Dip your paintbrush in water and brush water onto one of the larger triangle-shapes. Place a smaller shape on top of the larger one and gently press. Wait for the water to dry and test to see that the two shapes are stuck together. Repeat for all other triangle-shapes.
Use paintbrush and water to lightly moisten the corners of each triangle shape and form all 8 into a circle shape as shown in image.
