Demo: How to arrange paper ranunculus and bougainvillea flowers

Instagram Live

Watch me as I arrange my paper flowers Live on Pink and Posey's Instagram account to create this stunning floral sculpture. Here, I am arranging ranunculuses in a variety of pinks and bougainvillea in a beautiful coral. I am using a small compote-style vase, with pin frogs and chicken wire for structure.

Demo: How to Make a Berry Branch

Instagram Live

Sometimes I like to include berry branches to my arrangements. In the following 4-Part video series, I show you how I make sloe berries, but this technique can apply to any berries. I also show you how I make my branches with stem wire and crepe paper, how I assemble the branch with the berries and leaves, and how I colour the branch to make it look real.

Course: Foxgloves

Online Course | Purchase on Teachable

Ideal for Intermediate students (or students with previous experience making paper flowers).

In this course, you will learn how I make amazingly realistic-looking common foxgloves (Digitalis purpurea) at your own time and pace. I first teach you the basics of how I make my white version ‘Dalmatian White’ from template to assembly. Then, I’ll show you how I make 2 other versions using this general formula: the ‘Camelot Rose’ foxglove and the ‘Apricot Beauty’ foxglove.

You’ll learn and perfect the following skills and techniques:

  • The basic formula to make my 'Dalmatian White' Foxgloves
  • 2 additional variations of foxgloves, namely, the 'Camelot Rose' and 'Apricot Beauty'
  • Using colour to imitate the stages of progression from bud to maturity;
  • Creating buds and blooms in different sizes to mimic the stages of maturity;
  • Creating realistic petal details using tools you already have or can easily access;
  • Assembling the buds and blooms in a natural spire shape.

I’ve taught this flower at a workshop, thus I’ve been able to perfect the formula so that every student, beginners or intermediate or advanced, will end up with stunning results within a few hours. If you wish to add more details to the flower after you’ve learned it from me - sure, feel free to do so! Variations create interest in arrangements and your paper garden.

The first foxglove I made was for one of my earliest bouquets. I had originally sought to use it to elongate the shape of the bouquet. But it refused to be just a structural piece. It became the star of that bouquet. I promise you that with a little patience and an afternoon free of distractions you’ll make a foxglove worthy of your paper arrangements and garden.
