Just abut any type of bloom can be used , including big blossom; simply create a large pouch to hold them.
How to make : Step by Step
1. Fold a sheet of craft foam in half, and cut the foam into the desired purse shape.
2. Staple the sides to foam a pocket. Remove the stems from the leaves, spray the backsides with adhesive (or use glue gun) and layer them onto the pocket in an overlapping manner, beginning at the top.
3. Punch holes into the corners of the open end of the pouch. Thread two lengths of 1/4 inch wide ribbon through the holes and tie them to form straps.
