Petal Pointer: Tape Grids

Most of you out there probably have a big, beautiful container you’ve been
wanting to use for flowers but maybe you haven’t because you weren’t sure
how to deal with its cavernous opening. Well, be daunted no more.
A simple grid will help bring rhyme and reason to your next floral design.

Here’s how our Mechanics Editor Mimi Brown does it:

Using thin Oasis floral tape, cut strips to go across the top and make a
grid pattern.

Next, run a long piece of tape around the edge to hold the grid in place.

That’s it! You’re done. And all your admirers will see is the beautiful
arrangement you create, and not the behind-the-scenes work that went into
it.
