Do you think it would be a problem if I substituted styrofoam eggs for celbuds for rose centers?
I actually will use the small styrofoam balls - just squish the top of them so they form the bud shape. Lots cheaper. Just make sure the client knows the flower is not edible at all.
Not a problem. Those celbuds are sooo expensive. Depending on the size flower, you can use candy. An instructor used a jelly bean on a toothpick and mad the prettiest roses I've ever seen. I use the tiny Jelly Bellies to make miniature roses.
Someone else, on another thread, suggested a gumdrop. I thought that might work.
I never hear/thought of jelly beans, just because of the shape. I've heard some use Hershey's kisses. Unwrapped, of course.
WOOOO -If I used Hersey kisses, I'm not sure how many roses I would actually get made!!!
