How to Make Your Own Wedding Bouquet

Hi everyone!

Cheryl Whittaker created this wonderful tutorial just for Gauche Alchemy showing how she made her own wedding bouquet!  If it moved a little too fast for you on the origami part – go back and re-watch it a couple of times… the technique is simple and the effects are SO worth it!  Congratulations to Cheryl on her nuptials!  I wonder if she used our Wedding Night mixed media kit for her garter?
