    Add a card that you've made yourself if you'd like. Even a simple shape cut out of plain colored card paper, such as a heart or a circle, is very effective.

Tips

  • Make sure that the highest stems are the taller buds. Think of this as you pick, buy or cut them!
  • Glue or stick the ribbon down if you choose to wrap the ribbon around the bottom. Otherwise it may come unravelled as you're carrying the arrangement.
  • Make the ribbon the same color as the flower petals, unless you can achieve a good contrast without clashing.

Things You'll Need

  • Ribbon
  • Flower with six buds
