Polystyrene bud cones made by CelCakes, ideal for using as flower centres e.g. roses.
They reduce the weight of the finished flower and give a good, even base from which to work your flower.
Insert a wire to the gauge of your choice i.e.it should be heavy enough for the size of finished rose. Insert wire horizontally into the widest point of the bud, (about 1/3 up the bud) and push through approx.1.5". Twist this end with the stem end of the wire, having brought both ends under the bud. Tighten so that the bud is fixed securely and cannot move. It is now ready to use!
