button flowers

I can't believe they turned out! Here are the button flowers I made for my little nephew's "cute as a button" baby shower.

I would still like to add the leaves to my bouquet as seen in the inspiration photo.  I also plan to stick the stems in floral foam to ensure they stay in place.  Here is a close up view of a stem.



A helpful tutorial can be found on the whimsy love blog.  A few notes: I opted to use 18 gauge wire from the jewelry section at michaels.  The wire was rather pricey {even with a coupon} so I didn't twist all the way down the stem.  Don't limit yourselves to shopping at an overpriced craft store, I scored some green floral wire last night at the dollar tree!
