Make a Rose Boutonniere

Add Another Pittosporum Leaf

As I make this rose boutonniere, I've decided to add one more pittosporum leaf on the left side.

I place it against the rose head and tape into place.

Even though I wired the leaf, it is being pushed out at an exaggerated angle.

I could hold it closer to the rose head with a dot of floral adhesive.

Another fix would be to quickly tape another wire with corsage tape and bend into a hairpin shape.

I then tape this hairpin wire on the boutonniere stem and against the leaf.

This gives me more the clustered look I prefer.   I know this seems like a lot of trouble, but you can get very fast with creating perfect boutonnieres.  Taking the time to make every detail perfect is what I feel sets professionals apart from amateurs.
