Reflecting on the trip to the wedding of people very close to me, I wanted to make an original gift with my own hands. I really liked the idea of ​​creating a floral arrangement of corrugated paper and sweets.

How many colors to make depends on basket size. For my wedding basket, it took 11 pieces to make. Some flowers are made of pink paper, some - from white. After all the flowers are made, you can begin to form a composition. At the bottom of the wicker basket set a rectangular piece of foam. The choice of foam is due to its ability to keep its shape and softness, which will easily fix the stalks of toothpicks in the desired position. The rectangle should be clearly placed in size and be 2-3 cm below the height of the basket. To the bottom is fastened with packing tapes.

At a slight angle we stick the wooden stalks into the foam plastic stand. We fill small intervals between flowers with green branches. I had a thin plastic that scrolled well (it turned out something similar to bindweed). In general, leaflets can be used any. Also, if you wish, you can decorate the roses with beads or rhinestones attached to a quick-drying glue.
