Lily Glamellia bouquet is popular as a bridal bouquet or a table décor.
Originally Glamellia bouquets were created out of gladiolus petals and remind a camellia flower.
That is why it was named Glamellia:
Gla – from gladiolus and mellia – from camellia.
The most long lasting petals have Oriental lilies. To force blossom opening fester, remove all the flowers from the stem and place in room temperature water. Never use warm water!
To create a 6” Glamelia we need 2 stems of lilies, 10-12 large Salal leaves and a hot glue gun.
Start from composing a leaf cuff. Create a semi-circle cuff gluing leaf over each other. Apply a drop of glue on each leaf overlapping leafs and covering a glue drop on the previous leaf.
Snap lily petals out of stems.
Glue petals one by one to the leaf cuff applying a little drop of glue on a tip of each leaf.
Petals should overlap each other.
Create three layers of petals and then glue in the center a lily flower with a stem.
Place a Glamellia into a vase with water. The vase high should be maximum 2″; all the petals have to reach the water.
