Add a touch of Parisian chic to your bridal bouquet with a scalloped disc detail.
Cut a disc of tracing paper 26cm wide. Fold into quarters, then cut a scalloped edge. Draw around the disc onto felt and cut out. Press holes along the edge with punch pliers and remove a slice, the width of one scallop (1). Score an 8cm cross in the centre. Overlap the sides of the slice to create a wide cone. Secure with a glue gun. Slide the stems through the centre, fasten with pins, then wrap with ribbon.
