Due to the Chinese belief that people in mourning are not supposed to attend celebrations like weddings, I am not able to be her bridesmaid as planned. But having heard from her that she might not be able to get enough help from the new bridesmaids, I thought I should at least help her a little.
And so, what began as an offer to help her get the crepe paper streamers became a chance for me to aid in making the crepe paper flowerball. I am a little shocked that a such a small (3" to 3.5") foam ball requires more than 2 rolls of streamers (each 81 feet long). Perhaps I had made my roses tighter than normal and packed more into 1 small ball.. Haha..
Here's the final styling of the flowerball:
