I cut my leaves using my A Child's Year cart. I cut them in both 1 and 1/2 inches...chalk or ink...take a small piece of wire and glue it to the back of the leaf....fold the leaf to make sure it has good contact with the wire....let these dry.....

Begin adding the leaves to your branch by twisting the wire around the branch.

Glue the flowers to the this point I added the smaller leaves by glueing them under the flower.

Cut some additional wire pieces at about 4 inches and spiral around a wooden sqewer.

Add these to your branches and you have created you own handmade floral stem....hope you have enjoyed this tutorial....can't wait to see how you use it!
