I made my bouquet out of tissue paper (the kind used in gift bags), floral tape, floral wire stems and ribbon (for wrapping the handle). The flowers were inspired by the Martha Stewart tissue paper flowers with some alterations here and there. The ribbon on the handle is not the final wrapping. It was a practice or prototype using ribbon from the dollar bin but the final product will be wrapped similarly, just with a prettier ribbon and maybe some embellishments.
The same bouquet, just moved out of the direct sunlight:
