I'm from the Malay culture and for weddings, we usually give the ''bunga telur'' as doorgifts to our friends and relatives. The picture below shows an example of it.
We call it ''bunga telur''
because our ancestors hang the egg (telur) on each flower (bunga) that they make by themselves. Naah...don't worry, we use boiled eggs instead of the raw ones..
Ok back to current story. My lecturer wanted us to give out goodies during our marketing presentation day. I was thinking that we should do the ''bunga telur'
' but instead of using the flowers and eggs (it'll get rot), why don't just arrange some lolipops and make a lovely yummy bouquet. So, I asked my friends to get all those stuff from the craft store and here's the tutorial
*drumrolls*What you need:1) lots and lots of lolipops
p/s: I just realise that htey have the mini ones..yay!!! 2) 30 swg wires3) 16 swg wires (for the hard stand)4) some tapes (no pics here but you'll find it if you scroll down)Step by step by step..1) Firstly, gather 3 or more lolipops together. more pops, the better it will be.2) Then, tie them up together by using around 6-8 cm of the 30 swg wire
ok next!!3) Bend the 16 swg (30cm) wire in half4) and twist it until 3/4 of the bent wire. Be careful of the pointy ends (ask mummy for help, ok kids!)5) then, slip in the twisted wire in between the tied up pops bouquet (as shown in the red circle)6) Here comes the tape. Wrap around the stems tightly (really, really tight) until the end.
7) and kaboom!!! there's your lolipop bouquet
Your very own chupa chups pop bouquet
p/s: I'll update soon with the real finish look of the bouquet.
You can also add some veils or other ribbons and stuff with desire..If my tutorial is unclear, you guys can leave a comment/questions here and also, I would like to see your very own lolipop bouquet
Ok here comes the photos of my completed project.
sorry for the blurry effect
I just keep it simple and not too elaborate
close up bow (yeah, I also did the bow by myself..found some great tutorials at youtube)
and this is our team's label tag..I found some cool and funky frames design on google and decided to pick out this one.
It was suppose to be like this in black and white, but my sister's printer gone a lil bit crazy so it turned out to be brownish..but brown looks more chic (in this case
we did the silkygirl cosmetics company and put the whole team's name on the tag. (if you're wondering there's no Amy there, it's because my mates call me ''WHY'' instead of Amy..teehee)
and that's all..YAY!!!!!!thanx for viewing..feel free to comment here..and I'd like to see yours too!!
