I love the look of the poofy fabric, can someone explain to me how it's done?

Round is the same method as I use for the square ones. The link above it to my tutorial. Click on each picture for the explaination that goes with it. Good luck! I love the puffy bases. I have about 4-5 different sizes and shapes for my brides to pick from. If they want a different color, they supply the material and I make it. I charge them for the time, if they want it back. If they let me keep it, I dont' charge them for the time to make it. HTH
