How was the Declaration of Independence significant to the creation of the constitution?

The Declaration of Independence is the document that declared our freedom from the crown, and stated the we were separating from Great Britain and creating our own country. This created a need for a document to guide this new country. The Articles of Confederation preceded The Constitution, but gave so much power to the individual states that it became as if we were actually 13 separate countries, each colony having their own currency, laws, taxes, etc. This created the need for a more centralized federal government and from this need our Constitution was born and adopted on September 17, 1787. At 225 years old it is the oldest document that governs a nation to this day.

What form of government preceded democracy?

Well if you mean in terms of the USA mainly, it was monarchy meaning ruled by a powerful king. But once they declared independence from Britain, they became the first country to have an elected president in the government. So I suppose monarchy and other similar forms of government preceded democracy.

How was the constitution flawed?

Well, I think you might be referring to the fact that without the first 10 Amendments (the "Bill of Rights") there were States that would not ratify the US Constitution. Having just fought the Revolutionary War and having endured certain limitations on various rights under the English Crown, there were lingering issues and concerns that the main body of the Constitution didn't address such as freedom of speech. Most of the effort to put it together was to "beef up" the Articles of Confederation that had preceded them and were a failure because that document just didn't give enough power to a central government and left virtually every state with the right to make things difficult for other States.... Otherwise, every document like our US Constitution has flaws in that it is a document created by people attempting to come up with an arrangement acceptable to many. As such it contains compromises. There is no "perfect" document out there. The greatest thing I think about it, however, is the flexibility to either correct flaws or adapt it for changing times without destroying its fundamentals.
