Admire..."faux vine"

So, all Prima flowers come without wire stems. You know, flat in the back. Instead of just placing them on the page, like I always do, I wanted to make a vine with them. This is when a "faux" vine came to mind.

Basically, all I did was wrapped a 13 in wire with floral tape, twirled it around a paint brush and made separate swirls. Attached the "branch" to the page with tacky glue then just placed the flower and leaves on top of the branch.

Here is a close-up of the swirls. This was so much faster to do instead of attaching all the pieces.

I had to get a close-up shot of the butterflies that I have at my esty. They add the perfect finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
