    I really like it!  My only comment would be to ask if it’s possible to make the stem part look more streamlined rather then having that bit poking out at the top?

    I love it!  Tell me where you got the berries so I can copy you 🙂  And are the leaves real?

    I think they look just a little off, maybe use flat leaves instead of the ones now? I’d love to see a more “not thrown together” one, I think you’re on to something! 😀

    Yea i would make the stem longer and tapered. A good way to do this is to have some sort or a base, such as piece of card or part of a popsicle stick, and then glue the flower steps on to that base and then wrap the ribbon around it.

    Thanks!  I’m definitely going to check out the fake greenery section!

    I just cut out leave shapes from fabric I had, it shouldn’t fray since it’s not something that is going to be rough-handled but they make a glue that will keep it from fraying you can put on 🙂

    I think it’s a great idea, and if this is what it looks like slapped together, I think it will look awesome when you do it for real!

    @buttontoes:  Mine are really similar!  I used holiday picks from Michael’s also and I found some picks with leaves on them.  I also found picks in the wedding section.

    I do like your idea but I think that you should find something else to be the main focus, and have the berries surround that  instead. Maybe flowers like @Talishazwi I don’t know. Yours was still good for a trial though! I love the colours your using.

    Cute, but I don’t like the berries.  You could use something else, like maybe a fabric or paper flower if you don’t want real floral?
