More Shell Bouquets

This bouquet I added to etsy.  I made it over 4 days, but if I spent dedicated time, it would have been two workdays.  I really like the result.  Making the tiny cherry blossoms out of silk was very time consuming.  I used the distressed tulle method that use in my book Bouquet Chic on page 108, but the tulle I used was thinner than the wider spaced netting in the book.  To give it a vintage look I hand distress the tulle, meaning I tore the edges by hand.   The hair facinator and boutonnierre can be seen on my etsy listing.
