Floral handbags can be made to carry…by a bridesmaid or the mother of the bride, for example.  They can be filled with petals to be strewn by the flower girl. Or…they can be made into a desktop arrangement meant for display only…

Making a display arrangement in a handbag is simple: line the inside with cellophane wrap from a craft store, place a jar or vase filled with floral preservative inside and fill with flowers. You can also line the inside with cellophane and then add a block of wet floral foam before arranging the flowers. Arranging in floral foam makes it a little easier to place the flowers where you want them, but I usually find that the arrangement lasts longer in a vase. Don’t forget to add water every other day…

The best part about making a handbag arrangement? Shopping for the handbag!

Note: Flat bottom handbags work best.
