I wanted to keep my bouquet, so I decided to do a full boquet of white & blue ribbon roses to match my dress. It's taken me a few months (I'd make a rose or two at night watching tv, or a couple at work during lunch), but this is what I've come up with:
here is a close-up of the roses:
I hot glued all the roses to sticks and stuck them in a styrofoam ball that is on a bouquet holder. I'm not completely finished with it yet (there are a few places that could use another rose or 2), and I still haven't figured out what I'm going to attach to the ball of flowers to be able to hold it through the ceremony. I was thinking a dowel, and wrap it with more ribbon...
Oh! And here is the tutorial for the roses that I used
I hope you all like it! It's one of my first projects
