The trick to nailing a 2-D bunch that's lush yet composed is to place the flowers first, then pick them up one at a time, brush the backs gently with craft glue from the centers out. Add a trailing ribbon, and protect your work with several coats of découpage glue or clear resin on top. #marthastewart #crafts #diyideas #easycrafts #tutorials #hobby
