Speaking of flowers, you will be referring to beautiful flower arrangements, having various species of flowers rich in beautiful colours, mesmerizing aromas, and pleasant textures and shapes. The main points that need to be considered while preparing a nice bouquet of flowers is to pay close attention to elements like combination of flowers, as the combination of flowers must meet certain criteria, such as colours, shapes and sizes. Another important point is the usage of foliage, i.e. the leaves accompanying the flowers, which must be arranged in equal sizes and shapes, and must be fresh and green to match perfectly with the flowers. The bouquet can be made as basket of flowers kept in pots, wooden containers or well wrapped in a decorative paper or plastic. Making use of exotic and bright coloured flowers make the bouquet look amazingly beautiful.

I absolutely love this idea, and I think it would make an awesome and unique gift for my dd to take to her teacher during Teacher Appreciation week. I'm thinking I'll have to pick up the supplies the next time I'm at the craft store so that we can get started ahead of time. Then we can just grab the floral part when it's time to give the gift. Sweet!! Thanks for sharing the tutorial. =) Rebekah
