how to wrap a bouquet of flowers
There are times when you have a garden full of flowers you want to share the beauty with friends and family.

While you could just roll them in newspaper you know that there is a nicer way of doing it.

Learning the same tricks that the florist do to wrap your flowers when you give them as gifts will make your flowers seem extra special.

This also comes in very handy when you can buy your flowers at discounted prices but there is no presentation to them.

You are going to need wrapping paper and I just use gift wrap paper. 

Don't use cheap thin paper as it will crease and rip very easily. I add a layer of tissue paper for some extra color. 

I over lapped the tissue paper about an inch on the top corner and two sides with the good side facing out.

Cut the paper into a large square.

Place your green in the corner of the paper and extending an inch or two. Lay your first flowers on top of the green.

Add the flowers one stem at a time in layers so you can see the flower heads. When you wrap the flowers they will gather together.

Take the right corner of the wrapping and tissue paper and pull it across the flowers but not too tightly.

You want to make a point at the bottom of the paper.

Tuck the paper behind and tape.

If the point of the paper is very long then bend back the bottom and tape it.
