Wrapping up a Bouquet is fairly easy. Here’s how I did mine for the Cheer Coaches:
I took a page from my Mom’s book here and I dampened a paper towel and wrapped it around the stems so the flowers won’t wilt until they were put in water. After that, I took a plastic sandwich bag and put it over the paper towel because I didn’t want my wrapping to get wet. Then, I put a rubber band around the plastic bag, just in case it would come off.
Next, I decided to wrap these flowers up with tissue paper to give them a finished look. I laid my tissue paper down and I put the flowers at the top point of the tissue, folded up the bottom point on top of the stems. As you can see in the picture below, it doesn’t matter if the tissue isn’t even.
I took the point from the left side and folded it over the flowers, (picture 1) then took the point from the right side and wrapped it on top of the tissue that came from the left side, (picture 2).
For the tag, I put my cut-out heart stencil over the Coaches name and traced it (picture 3). I cut each heart out with my scalloped scissors (picture 4) and punched a hole in each heart with my heart puncher (picture 5). If you don’t have a heart puncher, a hole puncher works just as good. Same goes with using regular scissors instead of the scalloped one’s. I just happen to get my heart puncher & scissors on clearance one day.
To give it color, In picture 6, I took a red marker and outlined the scalloped edges.
Then I took my ribbon and cut it long enough to go around the flowers. To finish off the ends of the ribbon I folded the ribbon in half and at the end of the ribbon, I angled my scissors downward and snipped it, (picture 7 & 8). If you don’t want that look you can also try out what I did in picture 9, instead.
After slipping the name tag onto the ribbon and tying it around the flowers I tied it in a loose knot. You can see that in the picture under the heading, in the beginning. I hope after reading these instructions and looking at the pictures, you’ll be able to wrap up your bouquet with ease. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me!
Enjoy your day!
