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!

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.
