Cupped flowers look nice in an arrangement if you add a stem and calyx, or you can use them as little Easter and gift baskets.
This is a very simple technique that even young children can do.
|To make cup shaped flowers you will need:
|Gently push your flower into the lid or cup.
Mist with water or hold over some stem until damp.
Reshape in the cup if necessary.
|Let dry in the cup. When it’s thoroughly dry you should be able to remove it and it will hold it’s shape.|
