Wedding crafts - boutonnieres

I ordered some vintage flowers from Blumchen & Co., which I saw mentioned somewhere on a blog. I can't recall where. oops. The labels on the flowers are pretty fascinating - especially the old tag that says, "Made in Germany - Soviet Occupied".

I didn't like the flowers as they were enough to use them 'as is' for the boutonnieres. However, I knew that I wanted to make something ahead of time so that I won't have to worry about them as the wedding approaches.

I took all of the flowers apart and put them together as shown. I also inserted a beading pin with a loop on the back of the boutonniere so that it will be very easy to slip the corsage pin through and then attach to the suit lapel.
