Step 3: Now that the bulk of your blooms are in place, it's time to add the greenery. Fill in any gaps in the arrangement with greenery and extra flowers. Once done, secure the entire bouquet with floral tape and trim the stems with the wire cutter.  


Add ribbon and secure in place

Step 4: The vintage floral ribbon adds a pretty accent to the bottom! Start at the top and wrap the ribbon downward, then secure in place with a dab of hot glue.
