  1. Lovely boutonniere, but I would like to offer some constructive help on efficiency–especially when a busy designer is making LOTS of boutonnieres. Too many times of picking up and laying down the HUGE cutting tool. Also the stem wrap is designed to be stretched and wrapped while holding it in one hand–too much time and effort wasted in pulling a length out and cutting it. Mechanics and efficiency are just as important as a beautiful design–and proper mechanics will ensure that boutonniere will not move on the lapel as it did in this video.

    • Pushing the pin through from right to left , straight through the whole lot of the stems, will keep it in place tightly…top to bottom is pretty hopeless … as she showed 😉 . Good to see it being pinned from the backside of the lapel though, that’s how I always do them 🙂
