Default Wedding Flower Clip

Hello fellow hipgirls,

I need some help with making a wedding flower clip. My classmate is getting married and she asked if I could make her a flower clip that she saw and fell in love with at David's Bridal but too expensive ($99). Attached below is the link to the flower.

What type of flower is it and where can I find it? Is that ostrich feathers or puff underneath the flower? The center is a crystal but instead I'm going to use a rhinestone pearl button. TIA!

Personally I would make a singed satin flower with a ostrich puff under it. I think it would look phenominal. I made one similar to the flower (no puff), from satin that I can take a picture for you tomorrow.

I had never thought about making a singed flower. I would love to see a picture. Thanks!

I was thinking a singed flower also. and the underside is marabou. its also a lot cheaper than ostrich. im sure you could find a really glamorous button for the center. here is a link to a tutorial i like for the singed flower.

I would go to walmart or a craft store and get the loose flower petals that they use for flower girls or deco for weddings and start to "recreate" a flower they turn out kinda flat and but a beatiful peice in the center with feathers in the back ground

I just wanted to say that I've been asked to make this flower as well. The bride wanted it for under $10, so we went with this. priscilla 4.jpg
It was really pretty. It is an AR flower with some marabou and veiling.
Good luck!

This may be a silly question, but what is an "AR flower?"

(and your piece is lovely!!!)

This is a millinery flower. The closest that comes to it that I am aware are silk flowers. Also, you might also be aware of this site but the brooches are lovely for the center of hair wedding pieces: http://www.yourperfectgifts.ecrater....nestone-brooch
