A Little Memento

I'll be busy making 18 corsages 7 boutonnieres for a gathering that is planned for May 17th to honor the elderly for their faithful service in the congregation that I attend. Should be a wonderful luncheon with skits and good food. This is my proto type that I came up with. This way they can keep it as a little memento.
So I had to make sure I had enough supplies. Divided up what I got for this project in to separate baggies. That should help me keep organized. I needed it.
Do you think I should cut the "stems" even or should I leave them at their varying lenghts? I 'm leaning toward cutting them. Perhaps on an angle?

Quite lovely! I like your idea of cutting the stems...older folks might favor something shorter and more traditional for wearing...but sometimes it's hard to make such a call until you're at the end...either way they'll love having them as mementos of the occasion.

Nice new blue blog background!

My friend Therese tried to write this comment:
we tried to blog a comment but it would not go thru----leave the stems like they are because they look freshly cut from the ground per mom, peggy and i-----------------see ya later xo us

So let me say Thanks You for your input Ladies

I agree with Lisa, by having the stems cut. It seems more finished in a way. Love the colors of the flowers. ~Nance

I don't know. Personally I like the longer stems. Will they ravel if you cut on an angle? However you do it I am sure they will love them they are so pretty!!!

P.S. Did you make one more?

Personally, I think cutting the stems a bit shorter would be a good idea. But, I'm sure whatever you decide will work out fine.
