A Corsage from Paper Flowers

Recently, at Craft Fairy, I've taken delivery of a large number of fantastic paper flowers and they are too wonderful to leave untouched in boxes until they sell. So I've decided to put my floristry training into practice and show everyone how to use the flowers to make a corsge.

Set out what you need to start with:








First of all I cut the green flower in four as seen below.


Then I layered the smaller roses as shown below. Start with the smallest flower at the top and gradually wor down to the largest of the three.


Now twist the stems together.


Add some glue to the base of the leaf .



Glue behind the flowers as seen below.



Repeat the same steps with flowers and leaves for the other side. Lay them on the table and cross over at the centre point.


Put the large rose in the centre and then twist the wires together at the back of the corsage so that they lie flat. At this point, this is what you'll end up with.


However, I decided that it looked a little empty in the middle so I glued some green petals behind the central flower and I was happy with the way that it looked.

Lots more inspiration on my Craft Fairy blog.
