Okay, I've used the search function, google, everything, and I can't remember for the life of me where I saw this. Someone, somewhere, did a bouquet with the stems wrapped like a katana hilt. I know there's a word for how the katana is wrapped, but I can't for the life of me find a tutorial, and it's how I was hoping ot wrap my bouquet stems.

Has anyone seen the tutorial I'm thinking of somewhere? Also if anyone knows other forms of ribbon wraps that might look cool, that'd be awesome too.  ^^

Wow, I am entirely at a loss for this one.  I totally want to see the bouquet that you saw, though!

I'm not sure exactly what you mean... I googled "katana hilt" and it sort of looks like how I wrapped mine.
That looks really sloppy cuz it was my first go, but is it similar to that? Just more close together?

Yeah, that's close to what I was looking for. It was tied just like this: http://www.japanese-samurai-swords.net/katana-samurai-sword.jpg

I thought it was on a craft or wedding blog somewhere, but I can't even find the original photo if I saved it somewhere I have no idea where now..

Here's how I did mine.  I know it's not exactly the same, but it's an idea:





Actually, I think I took these close-ups for thekster before! Cheesy

I'll keep looking for the sword wrapping, too.

I'm sorry I don't have a picture - but I found some lovely stem wraps that seem similar to the hilt you linked on this website:

I'll search for a tutorial - she calls this "over braid stem wrap"

I did just a simple wrap with pearl headed pins for my bouquets - but this is way prettier. Smiley
