I made this whoppin' big flower recently. Valentine colors, for a present at a Valentine party, for Julia. It's almost 8" across. I wanted to turn it into a "real" flower by inserting a piece of floral wire in the stem and the leaf, and then in the back of the flower. But the flower head is so large and heavy that I wasn't sure floral wire would be strong enough. Nobody wants a droopy flower!
Happy Valentine week, everyone.
