The Formal Wrap
Double Faced Satin Ribbon
Pearl Headed Pins
Step 1: Cut approximately two feet of ribbon from the spool.
Step 2: Where the flowers meet the stems, pin the end of the ribbon into the stems. Pushing the pins through the floral tape for support.
Step 3: Wrap the ribbon around the stems, completely covering the floral tape.
Step 4: Fold over the end of the ribbon and lay the neat end along the bottom of the wrapped stems. Push the pins into a row along the end of the ribbon to secure.
The Romantic Bow
Step 1: For a dramatic, loopy bow cut many feet of silk ribbon from the spool.
Step 2: Fold the ribbon in half and lay the bouquet stems in the center of the fold.
Step 3: Wrap the ribbon evenly around the stems, hiding the stemwrap. Tie a knot and a beautiful bow in the center of the wrap. Let the ribbon ends hang freely for a natural, romantic touch.
The Layered Wrap
Step 1: Wrap the stems with the thicker of the ribbons in a same style as The Formal Wrap, only this time work from the bottom of the stems to the base of the flowers. Secure the ribbon with a single pin or glue the end of the ribbon to the wrap for a cleaner look.
Step 2: Cut two 2' pieces of the thinner ribbon. Hold the ribbons together and fold them in half. Lay the bouquet stems in the center.
Step 3: Pull the ends of the ribbons to the top of the bouquet and twist them around one-another several times. Pull tightly.
Step 4: Lay the twist flat on the stem wrap and pull the ribbons ends to the back of the stems. Tie the ribbons together in a knot to secure and let the ribbons hang freely.
