Hana-Kubari twig

Cut a twig

Cut a twig to the length you require. Cut away any side branches. This twig has an interesting double side branch, I left that so that the flower stem can rest between the twigs

See the Tutorial below for detailed instructions on how to easily cut a thicker twig

Split the twig at the bottom end.

Split the twig at the thicker bottom end with a sharp knife right through the middle of the stem.

Slip the twig over the edge of your container so that it stands upright

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
