6th June 2011: Bouquet - How I did it Lots of people asked me about the bouquet, so I'll tell you how I did it here so I can just link people in the future xD
First off, I got some insulation foam and cut some 3D teardrop shapes and wrapped them in craft foam. Then, I rolled out craft foam on the hob (on a low heat and it STILL stunk the place out!) and cut out the petals and curled the edges by hand whilst it was still warm. If they cooled down, I just held them over the hob again until they were warm enough to mold. After that, I glued the petals to the insulation foam core and repeated until I had a full rose! I then stuck some florists wire through the bottom of the rose and wrapped it in green 'stem tape' (florist's stuff) and added premade leaves and wrapped more tape around it all. That's one rose, so I repeated MANYMANYMANY times to get a full bouquet. On some of the stems, I also attatched some chiffon ribbon for decoration. I then added thicker wire to the roses and wrapped it in stem tape. I slowly built the bouquet wrapping with stem tape all the time until I had a reasonable bouquet shape (it WAS meant to be a heart but that failed >.<) To finish it off, I got some more chiffon ribbon and wrapped it around the handle and tied a bow at the top. All that was left to do was position the roses, chiffon and leaves until I was happy (I never was xD)
I SWEAR TO GOD, I SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE THAT F***ING DAGGER!!!
I am never making another bouquet again. EVER.
