Playing with forgotten colours

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

A philosophy for flower bouquet design.

There is no rigid formula nor is there one dominating factor that leads to good flower bouquet design. Constant energy and drive for each bouquet to be 'in their moment' is one of the key factors. Each of the stem should be at the height of its own individual season to maximise all it has to offer the design of the bouquet. It is through years of experience you will understand when that moment has arrived, when the flower is at it's very best and will perform well in the design. It is imperative that new designs are not just for each of the four seasons but for the changes within the season also.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Is it all mapped out or from some secret formula source?

There are times when bouquet design is planned ahead and each flower featured in a bouquet can be ordered in to meet exact requirements. Alternatively it's quite good fun to visit the flower markets and draw inspiration from the plethora of varieties on offer. Starting with a blank canvas and simply seeing which flowers really speak to you can help form the basis of amazing bouquet design that will be brimming with thought and emotion. Blakeworth's aim is to be at the forefront of bouquet couture, playing with forgotten colours and bending the rules of tradition and good taste.

To achieve this ambition we prefer to design as and when we are inspired, sometimes homing in on the flowers natural setting, perhaps prickly and spikey, loose and random, like wandering through a wild garden or else safe and in harmony but with a twist. Peonies and garden Roses, soft fluffy Panicus grass and then the twist – Strawberries and Brambles. This is just a small insight into Blakeworth's philosophy and how every effort is taken to provide your flowers by post as something memorable but never predictable.

Constant energy and drive for each bouquet to be 'in their moment' is one of the key factors to provide your flowers by post as something memorable and non predictable. Call today to flowerbypostuk.co.uk to send flowers.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
