Keeping design details submerged in water

Flowers tend to float in water. To keep them floating neatly on top of the surface you need to give them a bit of air. See the Tutorial below on how I make a "skirt" from bubble wrap to keep flowers floating neatly. To keep them submerged you need to add a bit of weight.

Corsage magnets are rather heavy for it's size and can easily be used as a decoraive sinker

They are really convenient to use and wont rust or damage the plant material

You can also tuck the magnets between the petals of the flowers in strategic places to add much needed weight

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.
