  3. Step 3

    Place stamen end of stirrer in center of crepe paper petal; wrap petal around stirrer to form blossom; bind with floral tape.

    Wish you had posted this LAST week! I just did a wedding this past weekend in which I used callas and green spider mums. These would have been so cute to add to the scheme!!!

    thank you so much

    I wouldn't use tissue paper, it doesn't hold it's form as well and won't do well in a drink. Try this site for crepe paper: https://www.castleintheair.biz/shoppe/?b=10

    would green tissue paper work instead of crepe paper. I can not seem to find the crepe paper

    Where can you find the two-toned green crepe paper? I've looked on the Martha Stewart website, and can't find it! Any help would be great, thanks!

    Oh I'm glad! They are not EXACTLY like these (the "stick part" is flat not round, but I think they will do!). Happy Wedding!

    MEL8937 you are a LIFEASAVER! I'm the queen of Google and could only find versions for personalization for $.40 each! I've looked for hours for these #$%@! things :) These were one of the last "decor" things I needed for my June wedding. Thank you so much for posting!

    I finally found the clear swizzles...I just ordered them, so they haven't been delivered yet, but for $9 for 500, it was worth a try: http://barsupplies.com/ball-head-stirrers-p-677.html

    I wrote the website about my question

  • slovely 15 Feb, 2010

    I can't find clear plastic swizzle stick anywhere! Does anyone have any ideas?

  • soonmrsjake 1 Feb, 2010
