Bullet Casing Boutonniere - Bullet Shell Boutonniere


These fun boutonnieres are perfect for the guy who wants something unique and masculine. The idea came about from a custom order I made for a client. I loved how they turned out & wanted to offer them in my shop to sell to others as well.

THE LISTING IS FOR ONE OF THE ABOVE BOUTONNIERES. The boutonniere is made with an empty bullet shell that is approximately 2" inches tall. Strong magnets (with the green plastic pictured in the listing), are attached to the back of the casing to ensure that it will stay put. I've used dried English lavender, preserved juniper foliage and a miniature sola flower. Sola flowers look like fresh flowers but they are not. They are hand made with soft balsa or tapioca wood which makes this boutonniere a great keepsake after the event!

These boutonnieres are a "made to order" item. Allow 2-3 weeks for items to be made & ready to be shipped. If you need to receive your order earlier, you may purchase this rushed order listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/227643850/rush-my-boutonniere-order?ref=shop_home_active_2

I do my best to ship these to you with as little damage as possible. I do this by double boxing most of my items. Dried lavender is very fragile so there will be some shedding of the lavender in the packaging. There is a lot of dried lavender in this item so even with some shedding, the product will still look good.

I am happy to customize this item so that it will work with your event. Convo me your color theme or ideas & I'll give you some suggestions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are sola flowers?

Sola flowers are not fresh flowers. They are handmade with shavings from tapioca or balsa tree bark. Because they are handmade, and made from natural materials, no two are exactly alike. Some brown veining are on some of the flowers due to being made from the bark of a tree. They feel like thick paper in person.

Do you use fresh greenery?

No, all greenery and filler flowers I use in my designs are real plant material that has either been air dried, or chemically preserved and dyed after it has air dried. This allows all my items to be kept as keepsakes after your event.

How far in advance before my event can I recieve my order?

Since all my items are keepsake items, you may keep your flowers 1 year or more before your event if you have a place to store them. They should be stored in a dry place with no humidity and no direct sunlight. Direct sunlight over time will eventually fade the flowers. After your event, you'll still be able to enjoy your keepsake items.

Are sola flowers fragile?

Yes! Although hardier than fresh flowers, sola flowers are still fragile and need to be handled with care. Our designs are carefully packed for shipping, but sometimes small tears or broken petals may occur due to shipping. Even if this happens, the flowers are still beautiful and usable.
