  1. I commented there, but I have to say it again here–the knotted chrysanthemum is just so gosh-darn clever!

  2. Hey, this is great! I loaded up on materials at the craft store last night, and now it's Saturday morning and I am ready to make some wedding stuff. …Except I don't know where to start. So now I know – thanks!

  3. The robin's egg blue is such a lovely color. I want to go dye all my silk that color. The flowers are wonderful and the feathers in the bouquet add such a Parisian touch. not that I've ever been, though I am obsessed with french knots. I would put them everywhere.

    Off to look at the tutorials, but I could be in trouble and end up with soft blue flowers all over the house, I'd have to rent a storage space!

    • Lol! Too cute!

      I'm also in love with the robin's egg blue! I wish we have robins here in the Philippines. I also love the Tiffany Blue color.

  4. Hi! I would like to thank everyone who participated in my Wedding Bouquet contest giveaway! Your comments inspired me to create more handmade flower tutorials for you to enjoy making with your lovely entourage or with you loved ones.
