You did a GREAT job! I made mine, but they didn’t look that good. What kind of clay did you use? Air dry? If so, what brand? I did oven bake and used Sculpey, Fimo, and some generic because I couldn’t get the air dry to work for me. Here’s two of my bridesmaids bouquets before I was completely done:

And here’s a picture of mine in use:

it looks great! i think you should trim the stems and use a satin ribbon though.

@Sady Jane: Man, that stuff came out where I live about a month after I started mine. When I saw it, I just knew it’d work. You really did a great job and I wouldn’t changed anything.

Oh, idea though. The little, purple flowers in mine were dried French lavendar to add smell. Granted, I don’t think you need them AT ALL, you can add them to give them a scent.

Also, I love looking at my bouquet which sits on our mantel, so I really believe all the time you’ve spent on these is well worth it.

I found it here. Some other Bees used it, so I tried it and loved it. I recommend the dried French lavendar because it’s prettier than the regular lavendar in my opinion.

Ditto PP, those are amazing, fair play to you! I agree you could lose a couple inches off the stems, would prob help. Well done though, were they very difficult to make?

@aunt pol: I made theses flowers too (not as well) and didn’t think they were hard. Here’s a really good tutorial by Mrs. Poodle which I used. The clay she used isn’t available in the States, so use the clay the OP used. I bought all kinds of air dry clay and could never find anything which worked for me. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
