I finally finished it! I was very much inspired by the work of Amanda over at Design Whimsy, but decided that I could make something similar for less. It is made entirely out of fabric, ribbon, feathers and vintage brooches. This only cost $65 to make. I can’t wait to carry this down the aisle.

For all you DIY’ers out there, here’s some more pics and instruction before I put the bouquet together: http://stephanieisgettingmarried.blogspot.com/2009/01/project-2.html
Basically, I followed this tutorial on how to make fabric rosettes: http://www.ehow.com/how_4828196_make-fabric-rosettes.html
Then I hot glued the rosettes to wire floral stems and added into a fabric wrapped bouquet holder.

Amazingly well done! I checked out your blog…. initially you commented about base (‘cage’ i think) being too small. How did you end up resolving this issue? Thanks!

@beffielou – I used a bouquet collar (see pic). I glued the fabric flowers to wire floral stems, then arranged the stems in the collar. Although I covered the collar with fabric because I didn’t like the trim on it.
