Those are Hydrangea's.  And very simple to make.  You just need the cutter and a former/veiner.

 

Like these:    http://www.flourconfections.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=hydrangea+&osCsid=4ef48cc6f6e38b2eacb6c2e55b1177fd

 

The silicone mold is top row center and the cutters are below.   These flowers grow in bunches.

 

Just Google image Hydrangea flowers.

 

They have very tiny centers, like tiny balls.  Attach the little center "ball" into a thin wire then push the wired center through the middle of the flower and arrange the petals to the desired angle and let them dry.

 

Once dry just  attach the wires together to make a bunch.

 

I'm sure there are videos online.

 

Hope that helps.

AHere is a link to the complete set. Cutter, veiner, and center mold. I have this one and it is very time saving to be able to mold the center. http://www.petalcrafts.com/hydrangea-cutter-large.html. Their hydrangea leaf cutter and veiner is also awesome.

AWilton has the gum paste flower cutter set. There is a hydrangea cutter and former, but only in one size. Fast to make and form. You can get the set at a major craft store and use the 40% off coupon.
