My father showed me boutonnieres (didn't know the word before then) on the net that he really liked.
They were from the states, so shipping them to Germany seemed a bit too much for these little things. So I got some gift wrapping band and things from my stash and got to work. Lots of strong hairspray later, I got this:

I really hope the hairspray will keep them intact for wearing them while dancing. No wild dancing, please.

I never would have thought to use hairspray! Cute and clever!

I know, and I don't even use hairspray. It was left over from when I made a wig out of cotton that badly needed to be fixated. I followed a tute on fabric flowers, but as usual I substituted too many of the ingredients with something else, and so the glue thing didn't work...:-)
