Filigree Floral Bouquet


I knew if I left one of our new filigrees on my desk long enough I would find a different way of using it

They are soft and bendable making them ideal for create a bouquet of flowers




I posted it on facebook on the weekend and had a few emails asking how to make it so here it is ...

Supplies Needed:

2 Rose Buds
2 Open Rose Buds


Place a piece of double sided tape in the middle of the filigree and place 3 mulberry leaves over it

Cut one of the stemmed flowers off from the stem and place on top of leaves


Add another piece of tape and add closed rose buds


Fold the sides of the filigree to meet in the middle

Then slide the open roses into the bouquet (I added some dimensional magic at this point just to double secure the flowers)


To finish off, tie a piece of organza ribbon around the bouquet
If you want to add a charm, half tie a knot, thread the charm on then finish off the knot



Here I have added it to an OTP I am in the process of making (have been for 2 weeks now!)

and check out the size of our new Timepiece charms, again our Antique bronze clock Charm!




And new to my2angels
