Flowers are beautiful and can certainly make a person feel very special. They can serve as an act of kindness or even contrition. Lately I've been thinking about how much I love flowers
and how I would really like to get into working with them. We'll just say that I'll add this interest to the all the others that float around and never get completed or even started for the lack of working space we have in this tiny abode. Seriously though, I'd like to work with flowers and I love corsages. A corsage
is fun and simple to make and usually commemorates a special occasion, such as a wedding
, graduation, baptism, or prom.
I went browsing around the web and found some neat places that give step by step instructions on how to create a beautiful corsage. Save on Crafts gives you instructions on how to make a fresh flower corsage
and a silk flower corsage. The instructions are very easy to follow and very detailed.
I personally like Visions of Silk because the author gives you step by step instructions
and pictures to follow. The only potential problem with this instructional that I found is that the author doesn't tell you exactly how long the pieces of gauge wire should be.
Elegance in Bloom is also a cool site with the author giving us detailed instructions
and pictures of the procedures that go into making a corsage. The provided instructions look very easy to follow and everything is laid out for you to see exactly what the author is trying to accomplish.
The next time you have a special occasion to attend, why not think of making your own corsages for the special person or people being honored. Giving them a corsage handmade
by you will make them feel even more special.
