Another vote for Dollar Tree. Buy floral stems in different colors and then take the petals apart. Put some bling or a brad in the center and you'll have plenty of flower embellishments for next to nothing.
I love the new Prima e-line flowers because they are really affordable. Plus I use these Pillar Packs all the time--and they are on sale here at SB,com for really cheap right now. They are PACKED with flowers.
Yes, they are expensive. That is why I am now making my own flowers and embellishments. I love the idea of making my own using my Cricut or other punches. Also, the Lollipop flowers are soooo easy to make! I refuse to spend so much money on the premade flowers. I also go to the $ store and tear the flowers apart!
If I am in Walmart and happen to see a flower on the floor, I pick it up. I tell them at check-out that it was on the floor. I have brought home several usuable flowers once I take them apart. I say why waste a pretty flower?
