I have created a floral bouquet using a variety of handmade and purchased flowers, The concertina flowers are made by cutting a 1/2” wide strip of patterned paper and folding in a mountain valley formation at each 1/8”, I’ve then joined the ends and pushed it flat and added a pretty pearl embellishment to the centre. The pink flowers have a knot of cord pulled through the centre of the petals to add dimension
