Title
(EN) PACKAGING FLOWER BOUQUETS
(FR) EMBALLAGE POUR BOUQUET DE FLEURS
Abstract
(EN)
Packaging material for a hand tied bouquet of flowers (1) comprises a sheet of flexible water proof material (6) and a rigid disc (7) attached to the sheet. The sizes of the sheet and the disc are selected so that, if the ends of the stems (3) of the flowers in the hand tied bouquet are placed on the disc with the stems extending generally vertically and the sheet is folded over the edge of the disc and around the stems so that it extends up to the heads (2) of the flowers and is tied closely around the stems, the flexible sheet and the rigid disc will combine with the stems of the flowers to form a substantially rigid container which will support and protect the flowers, may contain water and will enable the bouquet to stand upright on the portion of the sheet to which the disc is attached.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un matériau d'emballage pour un bouquet de fleurs noué à la main (1), ce matériau étant constitué d'une feuille fabriquée dans une matière souple et imperméable (6), et d'un disque rigide (7) fixé à cette feuille. La taille de cette feuille et de ce disque est telle que si les extrémités des tiges (3) des fleurs composant le bouquet sont placées sur le disque, ces tiges s'étendant de manière généralement verticale, et si la feuille est repliée sur le bord de ce disque autour desdites tiges, cette feuille se déploie alors jusqu'à la tête des fleurs puis est ensuite fermement nouée autour de leurs tiges. La feuille souple et le disque se combinent donc aux tiges des fleurs pour former un récipient sensiblement rigide destiné à soutenir et à protéger les fleurs, ce récipient pouvant être rempli d'eau et permettre audit bouquet de se tenir droit sur la partie de la feuille à laquelle le disque est fixé.
