What are you most proud of? Wiring the full blossoms, and buds in graduated sizes into a fairly realistic representation of an actual orchid bloom spike. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make extras of all your pieces (petals, throats, leaves, buds, etc.)!!! I was very lucky, and only broke one petal during the assembly of one of the bloom spikes. Though I didn't know how to fix it at the time, the flower was backward-facing on the display, and wasn't as noticeable.
