  • Old camera lens, preferably large format
  • Film strips you can destroy
  • Burlap
  • Scissors and some adhesive
  • Pins


  1. Give everything to a girl. Let’s face it, you’re all thumbs.
  2. Cut small pieces of burlap that’s sized perfectly for a boutonniere.
  3. For the groom, just attach the lens and you’re all set!
  4. For the groomsmen, cut the film strips. Get a few inches worth of sprockets, while shape the remaining film into small leaves.
  5. Style them so that they look like a flower (like in the photo). And attach them to the burlap strip.

Now don’t you guys look dashing?
