A few weeks ago, I shared my practice round of the boutonnieres I will be making for the groomsman & special men at the wedding. This tutorial shares the step-by-step process for making the same flower pins.
Supplies needed : a rose, a piece of ribbon, floral tape, floral wire, a straight pin, three leaves (mine are from a lemon tree, something similar to those shown would work) and some scissors. Mine are floral scissors because next week I will have a lot of stems to cut down. A note on the leaves - you want one decent sized one and two smaller ones. Mine were all a little too big and it made the finished product look a little wonky.
Add your remaining two leaves so they are both pointing out - making a "V" in the front of the rosebud. It might help to wrap each one with its own piece of floral tape. This will give you more control over the position it stays in.
I am going to make 10 of these next Friday morning and store in a Ziplock bag in the fridge overnight. It's only going to work for me to do them because I am not worried about them being perfect. If I was, I would be going through a real florist for sure.
