You can use every material ... paper and stuff.

For an environmentally friendly version you shouldn't use wire, buttons and a store bought vase either. Tongue Even things you personally can put into the right recycle bin afterwards - you don't know under which circumstances it was produced.

These are lovely - I will be trying my own. You've managed to improve on the original I think - I love the looser arrangement on yours, and the leaves are a gorgeous addition. Great!
