So how did you bind the flowers together into a bouquet without squishing them? I can't really seem to put mine together without squishing them up.

EDIT: Aw, I feel dumb. I realized that ya'lls bouquet's are bendable because you used wire for stems. I decided to use sticks as bigger stems. Sticks aren't bendable. AACKK! Maybe if I soak them in water I can bend them the way I want them to go.

I tried using sticks for my first flower actually. didn't work out, flower kept falling off.

Also I used floral foam for the arrangement.

Well my flowers aren't falling off, I taped the crap out of them so they're stuck on the sticks pretty good.I am just trying to figure out how to remove the sticks to put something bendy in. Maybe I will make a slice in the tape, pull out the stick (if you look into the flower, the stick looks like the inside of a regular flower XD) and insert a bunch of twisted up pipe cleaners.

WOWZERS! I just found this thread via the 2009 awards.
I scanned the entire thread to see if anyone else had asked if you'd consider providing a petal template for those of us who aren't "free hand friendly".

I have been so inspired by these roses that I decided to try to make some to show my DD, who is getting married soon, and suggest them for centerpieces for the tables. I tried one but when it dried the coffee filter paper looks like crepe paper. All wrinkled.  I have access to a bunch of those huge coffee filters.(Like yours, basket type) I used kids water colors. They also came out sorta "limp" but I added lots of floral tape to the bottom and it helped. What did I do wrong to make them wrinkle like that?

I really wish there was patterns for the petals.  Or at least sizes (length and width?) descriptions.

I've seen a tutorial of these paper flowers on Martha Stewart, in words and in a video.
But I prefer the pictures with a short description!

Here's the video:

And here is the template of the petals:

Good luck!

BTW I love the bouquet!
