Default I need help!

My cousin has hired me to make her a dozen of these headbands, the hardware and the ribbon is no problem to get but its the flowers that are going to be a problem. Anyone got any ideas?

Sorry I was no help, the headband is really pretty though.
My cousin is very detailed oriented, and the colors have to match perfectly with the tulle that I need to use.

See, thats the one thing I hate about living here in Hawaii. I miss Michaels and JoAnns. They don't have that here! The only thing that they do have is Wal-Mart. And the silk flower selection is VERY LIMITED. There are some small craft shops but you gotta pay an arm, leg and kidney for the stuff.

Yah ebay doesn't have too much. And I am afraid that eventhough the resolution is decent on my monitor. The color won't be right.

Do they have to be those exact roses, or can you make your own? You could make ribbon, or fabric roses yourself that match. It would be more time consuming, but would probably save money in the long run too.

AWWWWW I miss Hawaii!!! My brother was stationed there at Kaneohe Bay for 3 years. I am telling you,,,after spending 2 weeks there...it is IMPOSSIBLE to come home and have a good day at work..

Anyway, back to the subject, have you tried Silk Flowers | Floral Supplies | Silk Wedding Flowers They are really reasonable and have a huge selection.
