A flower filled purse, it's a perfect accent for any event. It's phone free, it's fabulous, and it's easy. Let me show you how. 

The base, an actual purse. Now go ahead and flip it open, pull it out, and then slide the flap on the inside poking it down in. Then for the snap, a single UGlu dash and then adding in a gem. That'll cover that. To hold the flowers in place, just a bit of the floral netting, tuck it in tightly making sure it's secure, and you're ready to flower. 

Start by covering your mechanics by placing some base materials, maybe a galax leaf tucking it down low, feeding it into the floral netting, a carnation. Again, nice and short tucked down in, a little bit of jasmine vine, be so pretty draping out to the side, tucking it low, then repeat adding until you get all the mechanics concealed. 

For balance, I find it best to divide orchid stem and add it in two insertions, so cutting out the center, then reducing the stem, going back, and placing that. Then repeat with the second segment. 

The finished purse is lightweight and so easy to carry. The recipe, a single stem of jasmine vine cut apart, three galax leaves, three carnations, and one miniature phalaenopsis.

 I know you're wondering, "How long is that going to last? There is no water source." This is a wonderful flowers to carry that's perfect for a day, reality, or just may give you two days, but it is, for the moment. It's just like a corsage or a wired bouquet, foam free, no water, but beautiful for the time. You'll find more creative inspiration on our website Flower School .com.
