Romantic Hand-Tied Bouquet

We used a mix of red, pink, and white flowers. You can create a mono-coloured bouquet, which will beautifully highlight the different textures of the flowers.

Materials

For the bouquet

  • 8-9 red roses
  • 7-9 pink ranunculs
  • 10-12 white filled tulips
  • 10-12 light pink French tultips
  • 5 branches white hypericum
  • a piece of thin green ribbon

 

For the card and envelope

  • printable card, envelope and liner (download at the end of the post)
  • glue stick
  • a piece of green wire (16 – 20 gauge)

Tools

For the bouquet

  • secateurs
  • florist’s knife
  • vase

 

For the card and envelope

  • craft scissors
  • metal ruler
  • bone folder
  • self-healing cutting mat

Instructions

1) Prep the flowers
After allowing the flowers to rest in fresh water for 2 hours, prep the roses by removing all but the leaves at the top. Remove the foliage from the tulips and hypericum, and cut away the buds of the ranunculus.

 

2) Building the bouquet
Assemble a rose, ranunculus, a pink and white tulip around a hypericum stem to create the centre. Use two of each flowers to build the next row. Arrange the second row slightly beneath the centre. The goal is to create a slightly domed shape. Rotate the bouquet as you go and add the flowers at an angle. Next, add four more hypericum branches. Use the remaining flowers to fill in each section. Try to make each section equal in size. The exact number of flowers you need will depend on the size of the flower heads.

 

3) Finish the bouquet
Shorten the stems to the same length. Tie the bouquet tightly together in the middle. While the flowers shouldn’t move at this point but stay in place, it’s important them the stems aren’t damaged either. Finally, cut the stems of the roses and ranunculus at a flat angle, which helps these flowers to absorb more water. This step isn’t necessary for the tulips.

 

4) Craft the envelope
Print and cut out the envelope and score along the grey lines. Apply the liner on the inside, and glue the bottom flap to the sides. Insert the card, and loop one end of a piece of wire two times around two fingers. Insert the wire into the middle of the bouquet and clip in the envelope.

Difficulty: Intermediate

Materials: roses, tulips, ranunculus

Care tips for the boquet

Change the water and re-cut the stems every other day. When replenishing the water, also pour with hot water to eliminate bacteria. If the tulips grow out of the arrangement, pull them back into the bouquet and shorten the stems.
