How do you all shape your flowers so that that dry kind of curved instead of flat?
It gives them more dimension when they have a shape to them.

Thanks! icon_smile.gif

You can crumple up some tissue paper or foil and lay them on there to dry.

Use flower formers. You can get a set from Wilton.

I use anything clean that I have around the house...measuring cups/spoons, empty and clean egg carton...whatever has a shape that you think will work. Sometimes you have to dust whatever your using w/ powderd sugar to prevent sticking though. icon_wink.gif
