Add a polka-dot element to your bouquet by attaching buttons to ribbon-wrapped stems. Use a button kit and choose silk to match your colour scheme. Cut a square of silk a little larger than a button, fold it over the front of the button and hook it on the metal teeth on the back. Use pins to attach the buttons to the ribbon.
