So cute!!! If I were trying a couple more, I would put the leaf on an angle to the other side instead (as men will wear them on their left lapel) and the bout typically angles outwards, and switch sides for the lower flower as well. Other than that maybe just try to loosen the flowers up a bit from one another. Your flowers look amazing! I’m so impressed.

Adorable!!!! I like at least partial symmetry, so I think it’d look cute with a other even smaller flower on the other side under the yellow… but totally not necessary.

LOVE! That is so freaking adorable. I agree with a PP, it should just be a mirrored image so the men can wear it on their left lapel. Such a fun idea!

I think they’re super cute! But the stems could use something more, dunno what though.

I would definitely wrap the “stems” in ribbon or twine, and make them the mirror image. Great job, though! They are really cute!
