A Grocery Store Bouquet - Part 2

Part 1

When we last left off I was finally happy with the size and shape of my bouquet. Unfortunately I didn't have any raffi in the house. I search around really quickly and decided just to use a rubberband.

I did a fresh cut on the stems and let them soak overnight.


The next morning I picked a nice satin ribbon from my stash and grabbed my scissors.

I experimented with few different ways to wrap the stem, but I finally found a way that worked. I did a faux wrap to figure out how much ribbon to cut.

I left about an 18 inch tail at the top of the bouquet and then worked my way down.


I wrapped at a slight angle all the way to the bottom.


Then started wrapping back up the stem, when I got to the top I tied off the top


Then tied the ribbon in a bow and cut the ends at an edge.


Ta Da!!

Ooo, I really like that style of wrapping. I've been thinking about incorporating ribbon bows into my own grocery store bouquets, but hadn't really figured out the best way to do so. Me likey.
