Start by trimming everything to the same length. We used a leaf from the artificial rosebud, a little bit of artificial baby’s breath, and the rosebud itself. Choose flowers that will match the wedding theme and the bouquets you have made or purchased.
Layer the pieces together and hold the stems as you wrap with floral tape. Remember as you stretch floral tape it becomes sticky. So pull slightly as you wrap. Wrap the stems completely to get a finished look.
That is it! Your boutonniere is complete and ready for any wedding, prom, or other event. This simple project can be completed with any flowers that match your event. Use the floral pins to put on the groomsmen before your ceremony.
