Default This is the only place I could think of to turn

Hi folks. Looking for some help here. It's not so much a craft as gift wrapping, but I'm thinking some kind of craftiness will need to be involved for this to turn out correctly.

Instead of giving a dozen flowers, I intend to give a dozen small Hello Kitty plush animals, but I'd like them to be arranged like a bouquet of roses and even wrap them up in a cellophane and like the flowers would be so I can present them as a bouquet.

I don't want to stick anything in the actual plush figures, but I would like to put something in the cellophane so it could be held/presented like a bouquet of flowers. (I suppose I could even get some flower/rose stems from a flower shop, but I don't know that that would facilitate early preparation of the gift.) Also, what would keep the dolls from falling out of the "bouquet" when it was held behind my back?

I don't know if this is even feasible, but I'll need it in just a couple of weeks, so if anyone could use their expertise/creativity and give me a few helpful ideas, I'd be ever so grateful as I'm pretty sure this idea would go over like gangbusters.

Thank you so much for taking the time to even read this tome and even more so if you have any ideas.

Use some sticks from craft store as stems, hold Kitties on sticks with rubber bands, twistys, florist's wire, or zip ties ( cable ties). even plain ol' string. Get some "greenery" at craft store ferns, baby's tears, leaves etc to make it look more bouquetish.

You could use dowels or craft sticks for the "stems", and wire would be good to hold the stuffed animals in place. You might even be able to use stiff wire for the stems.

Smile You may try velcro

I was just thinking if you can sew tiny velcro on the back of each toy. Further you make a center stem like holder using velcro too thus making it easy to stitch each toy on the stem and arrange like bouquet!

Infact, you gave a great idea of making a toy bouquet itself!
