I don't make them but found some on the web for $22 for 5 lilies with 6 leaves.

How long does it take you to make them?

Without leaves, I would say $3 each for ones 2 1/2".

I would just look them up on the internet like Juleebug did and then determine a price.

I think it's very important to know what the flower costs if one was to buy it fresh, then look at your time involved and decide how much per hour you want to be paid. For instance, a fresh calla runs 8-10.00 in fresh but I can whip one up in about a minute. I don't under charge because of what they cost fresh.

PS - I charge 6.00 each.

Jennifer -- I really don't know the cost of fresh flowers in my area. It would be awkward to call a florist and ask the price of each flower. Do you know an easier way?
