Tips for bouquet making

Remove the unsightly Leaves from the rosesbefore you use it.
Remove the leaves from the lower part of the stems of Ruscus and oats. So let yourself be tied and are more decent around the loop.
If you have the ostrich Compile, use each species a few stems at once - if you use only one stalk of each variety, it takes longer and acts more restless.
Be not too picky at the length of the stalks - Variations make the bouquet more interesting.
Make sure that the eye-catching elements (the brightest red, green and White tones) evenly about the ostrich are distributed.
Fit again and again new flowers and grasses until they do not flow blossoms and Grasses can hold more in your hand.
Hold the ostrich Temporarily together with a rubber band, while binding the loop.
