How about that, kind of takes the work out of it.

I would have had no idea how it was done!

I have always wondered how it was done. Merci!

That's interesting. There are all kinds of Disney creature topiaries at Disney World...I wonder if they use templates, too. Darn, you've destroyed one of my firm beliefs - that very creative artists did this stuff freehand. :)

Michelle said...

Interesting! Never thought they used templates!

Randy said...

I wonder if it's a stressful job.

Jack said...

I learned something. It make sense that they use a template.

I often wondered how they got them so perfectly matched Ciel, what a wonderfully simple way.. Brilliant idea !

OH! Thanks for giving away their secret! (Not that I'll be doing it to any shrubs in my own gardens, though.)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Well, that makes sense, very clever!

VP said...

That's the way they do it! I knew it had to be easier than I thought...

Sharon Anck said...

Interesting. That is not how I imagined it was done at all.

I have wondered how they do this! Great snaps. :)

j'hésite à prendre un gabarit pour mes haies

What a surprise. As a woodworker I should have figured that out.

Oh c'est amusant d'avoir pu voir ce qui se passe derriere la scene!
