@TaylorRae: Beautiful.  I have the same questions as @elysej85:

Did you use a tutorial?  Any tips/tricks?  How much do you think it cost to make?  Just hear about solas flowers and love them!

I will try to come up with a tutorial in the next week or so!  I did make my own bouquet and while it took me quite a while, it was totally worth it in the end and now I have something that I can keep and display!

Sorry it has been so long girls. I just received the message….weird. Anyway. I bought the sola flowers in many varieties from save-on-crafts.com. The site has great prices but the shipping is extremely high. I would recommend ordeeing extra of everything, not only is it cheaper but several times otens were out if stick when I needed more. Also, they are awesome about returns and usually will just credit back your card if anything is damaged. Ok into the work….I bought mostly individual flowers that needed to be wired. The roses came pre-wired. I used an embossing tool to poke a hole through the bulk of the back if the flower. Any sharp tool would work…I think I used a ceramic “pin tool” for some as well. From there I pushed the wire  through the hole around the stem and then back around into the same hole again. I wired all the flowers first then began arranging them into the boquets. You can see see other beads and crystals wired in there as well. My stem was made up of brown “rustic wire” from the same sure mentioned above. You can also find it in smaller rolls at JoAnna’s. there was no method here…I just wrapped the wire stems loosely until I achieved the look/thickness I wanted. I believe I hotglued brown ribbon over the wire stems to cover the silver color. I used small twigs for my bridesmaids’ boquets and I actually liked that look even better. I will see if I can find some more pics to upload for more help.
