Simple steam these flowers over a pot of boiling water and they come to life. I used beautiful paper and wired ribbon and the flowers made the wedding favors simple gorgeous. Everyone loved them.

Not for me.
I received them today and am very disappointed with the quality. They were all smashed into the bag and would be hard to change that.

Bought these pretty flowers for a Luau theme ballroom dance. Except for the pale blue, the colors really show up. They arrived smashed into a small package, but since we were floating some of them, we discovered that most of the wrinkles come out once they're wet & handled a bit. They maintained their shape & color and dried fast. We stored them loosely & will order many more for another dance.

Don't waste your money ...
I'm glad these weren't very expensive. This is a case of "you get what you pay for." These flowers were cheap looking and packaged poorly. They were all crammed into a 'too small' plastic bag so that when they arrived, they were all permanently folded and crumpled. We were going to scatter them on a tea party table but all of the hostesses agreed they were very tacky looking. Very disappointing.

One of the two worst products I've purchased from OTC
I bought these for my daughter's upcoming sweet 16 luau birthday party to decorate the tables. They are unusable. They are either torn or falling apart. On the up side, OTC has FABULOUS customer service and is sending me a $5 gift certificate because of the problem.

Patience Yields Reward
I am glad I read other reviews with this. Shoestring budget meant we needed big value for money. We got it, but with a little work. On receiving these, they were indeed smushed and wrinkled. DO NOT EXPECT TO USE THESE RIGHT OUT OF THE TEENY BAG THEY COME IN! I had a week before use. Get them out of those bags and spread out as soon as you can. After a few days, put them in the dryer with a damp dishcloth as suggested and they will come out great--except for the few "rejects" who should never have been shipped at all. Those had been "zig-zag" machine sewn where they had been torn or cut improperly. No way should these 4 of 72 been included! That's why I am not giving a 5 star rating.

Good value for the money
These are a nice complement to any tropical theme decorating. They look terrible when they come but I just spritzed them with some water and threw them in the dryer on low for 10 min. Some came apart, but they were easy to put back together. I tucked them in between potluck dishes, on branches of plants, scattered them on the floor, and some of the children immediately picked them up and tucked them in their hair. Can't be beat for the price.

I used these as napkin rings. I had to iron each flower in order to make them look the way they look in the picture.(They came all wrinkled). Everybody loved these napkin rings!!
