This is really nice. The demonstration is clear, and the video takes you easily from step to step, at a good pace for someone to work as they follow along. The diagrams are nice and clear too.

I recommend trying it!

A huge thanks to you for this post. My wife is a huge fan of lilies and I couldn't get good ones locally for this valentines day... so after a quick internet search, I found these brilliant instructions and put together a few. I am not normally a craft-y person, but these turned out really well and she loved them. Thank you so much! :)
