Cut slits into ½ of the streamers so that it looks like fringe.
Ball up a piece of the white confetti for the center of your flower.
Tape the floral wire to the stem of the balled up piece of confetti. Wrap the tape half way down the wire.
Wrap the black fringe streamer around the floral wire so that just the fringe surrounds the white ball of confetti.
Next, wrap the white fringed streamer around the black fringed streamer. Secure streamers with floral tape.
Cut petals out from the newspaper using your floral stencil. Punch a hole in the center of the paper flowers.
Insert wire through the paper petal. Secure with floral tape if needed.
Repeat steps 1 through 7 to create 4 more paper flowers.
Arranging the fresh-cut flowers with the paper petals.
Gather lateral stems (stock in our case) in one hand.
Next, add your carnations and spray roses.
Continue adding the rest of your fresh-cut flowers. Cut stems to 1 ½ times the vase and drop them in your desired container.
Arrange the paper flowers within your fresh-cut arrangement.
Remember to cut the stems ½ inch and change the water every other day to prolong the life of your fresh-cut flowers.
