- Disassemble the bunches of porcelain flowers and combine assorted colors of flowers into bouquets of 14 flowers each. Wrap the stems together with florist's tape.
- Using a rotary cutter, cut the bias-cut ribbon into pieces that are 18 inches long (one piece for each nosegay).
- Cut the vellum paper into 1-1/2-inch squares and cut the edges using deckle-edge scissors. Rotate the squares, and write the couple's names or your message in the center of the paper using a metallic-ink pen.
- Stitch a 3- to 4-inch-long piece of white thread or ribbon through the top corner of the vellum, and leave the ends untied.
