What are you most proud of? The fact that I made these without a tutorial.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not an easy flower to make but makes a lovely addition to a flower arrangement.

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I will be including these flowers amongst other in two courses I will be running in Leeds and York later in the year. I also run classes from home which is in County Durham. I am working on some more flowers that I just can't find in books also. Where are you based Crisany US? I am in the UK but I have been looking into how to post some videos online. I have to admit these flowers were more challenging than most but I love them so much I just had to have them. x
