Why don't you... use scallop scissors for a better bouquet?
Scallop-edged trim is one of my favourite details on pretty much anything. It always gives even the simplest of things some much needed feminine charm. Like this pretty bouquet of Spring blooms for example? Instead of using the usual wrapping from the flower shop, why not use a long sheet of parchment paper and trim all the edges with scallop scissors? Finish the bouquet by rolling it up in the paper on a diagonal and tie it with a shiny, new ribbon. You'll then have an even prettier arrangement to give to a loved one and a little more "natural" looking too. You could even try out kraft paper with a bit of twine... *so pretty*
