Cookie bouquet - please help me improve it - Page 3

post #31 of 45
Thread Starter 
Oh I have to Thank You All again. I learned in this post some new things. I just finished my second bouquet, using KHalstead idea of food wrap, and it does look much cleaner, better, and it give a shine to those cookies.
I tried the tissue paper on the back, but this I have to improve as well.
Thanks guys, and here is the bouquet (for my daughter school fundraiser, the theme is Family night out)

Great job! The bouquet is really nice.

How long do you think the ones wrapped in the saran wrap will last? Great idea. I've tried using the baggies and shrink wrap baggies and don't really like either so this is a good alternative. thanks

You need to use the foam that you deep it into water. You deep the foam in water this not only holds your sticks but puts weight into the boucket that way it wont fall or anything. I had the same issue before using it. The name of the foam is oasis you will have to buy it in a flower supply shop.

Good luck

KHalstead, your bouquets look great! what do you have down inside little cups/mugs to keep the sticks in place?

You've started me thinking...I wonder if you could print on some sort of label (name of your business maybe?), and then use that label instead of tape on the back of the cookie...

windy, that's a great idea! Using a sticker on the back of the cookie that is big enough to cover the stick so it looks like it's coming out of the cookie as opposed to being stuck onto the back will make it look much nicer from the back view.

I'm also a paper-crafter, so now I'm thinking you could really print your info, logo, etc. on any kind of paper and run it through a xyron machine to make it sticky. The only question is whether the xyron adhesive is strong enough to stick to the plastic and hold it together...I'm guessing it just might be!

Zlatka T, your "UNO" bouquet is wonderful! I liked your first one, too. I can't add anything that's already been mentioned, but I wanted to chime in and tell you that your bouquets are great.

Thank you GeminiRJ. I take it as big compliment from you, I admire your work.
I have Q for yane:
you mentioned to dip the green florist foam in the water....will the foam change its structure? When is dry, it is kind of crumbly (makes powder) is there reason for doing that?

Your uno cookie basket looks fantastic! I really need to make one of these soon!

Love your bouquet. My only suggestion would have been to put a 7th uno cookie to add a little height and make it appear more balanced. I think you should arrange in odd numbers, I guess that is an unwritten rule. I noticed on the cookie sites that they do odd numbers.

Here's a cookie bouquet I made. I'd like to find out how to add more tissue paper to the back of it.

Very nice bouquet. I love it. ....and Yes, I need to learn about the tissue paper as well. I could not make it pretty.

Take the paper and bring it up around a dowel. Stick the dowel into the foam, and slowly remove it, leaving the paper behind. Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty simple.
