In this instructable I have combined methods in various, previous instructables that I have made. Some new techniques are inserted so that entire bouquets can be made for your pleasure or gifts as desired.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Paper of various colors
Glue, white pva, and hot melt glue with glue gun
Wire cutters
Florist's wire and tape
Acrylic paint and brushes
Styrofoam or eps foam
Hotwire machine (optional if styrofoam is used)
Wood dowels for flower centers
Pencils, pens, straight edges
Burnishing tool
So beautiful! Congratulations!
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
Wow I want to try make this. How long does it you to make it?
<p>Thanks for the comment! I think I got to where I could make an &quot;average&quot; flower in 20minutes or so. But it does take a lot of time so you need to be prepared for that investment. But that is what art is for, to fill our time and lives with beauty and satisfaction! Good luck.</p>
<p>Congratulations on a beautiful Instuctable......</p><p>Your instructions are so easy to follow that I just had to begin creating.</p><p>I too am retired and am enjoying the freedom to just sit and make something, without the guilt.....lol</p><p>You have gained a follower.</p>
