I have only made them, not ordered them. This is a good company, but order early in case of breakage, order extra.

i made them in JenniferMI's class and they were so fun to do! not that hard at all. JenniferMI sells some fantastic cutters/veiners for making them. i would also suggest buying the cymbidium green petal dust from her. its exactly the right shade of green, so no worrying about the color!

thanks to all of you for responding. Really appreciate it. Will look at ordering but really would prefer to just learn to make them myelf so looking hard for a tutorial.

crazy4sugar - did you find their flowers looked "real"? I wonder about the quality because of the pries they are quoting

I'm sure they're not going to be as thin and life-like as the top quality gp flowers are, but here's a photo of the green orchid they sell for that price:

I suggest emailing or sending a PM to JenniferMI.

When I get in a bind, run out of time or am asked for flowers that I can't make yet, I'll order from caljava online. They have pretty fast shipping.
