|Hi, I am new t0 the board and live in Arkansas and do not sew much now as my girls are teenagers and I guess my sewing is not cool enough.I sewed a lot for them when they were small and they didn't compalin.I am trying to start a quilt but have not got far.I have been making a few candy bouquets for Birthday parties for kids at church and am having trouble with the cellophane.Does anyone know how to work that into the bouquet?I am using wood skewers for the candy and tried to poke the cellophane on there first but the hole just keeps getting bigger.I need a way to anchor it to the stick so it is bunched up and works as a filler for my bouquet??Any suggestions??||

Welcome to the gang Donella! We probably all run into the fact that Mom sewing for the teens isn't cool.
Have you tried bunching up your cellophane and wiring it (wire or twist tie) to a skewer first? I've made candy bouquets before but have only used the cellophane to wrap the whole thing up with a ribbon tieing it shut. I have made curly ribbon tho and wired it to the skewer and tucked it and it worked well so hopefully the same will work with your cellophane.
I hope you'll share pics of your creations with us.

Could you use one of those paper reinforcing rings around the hole before you make it? Or just use a small piece of sticky tape to reinforce the cellophane before you make the hole?
I'm happiest when I am sewing!
