Making flower bracet

Wrist corsage tutorial

Today I made some wrist corsages and prepared a tutorial for you.
It is quite easy and the end result is amazing.

Materials needed:

* ribbons
* elastic band
* flowers
* needle and thread (glue gun)

Step 1:

Make the foundation wristlet by positioning the elastic right in the middle of the ribbon and sew it with a zig-zag stitch. When sewing pull the elastic slightly making tension. When finished back stitch it. I made mine about 20 cm long. You can measure it before hand according to the size of your wrist. I advice you to make it longer; you can adjust the length afterwards.

After you measure it on your wrist, pin it and sew both ends together.

Step 2:

Make petals with the ribbon. 
I made several and sewed them together.

Step 3:

Add a contrasting ribbon. I chose white for my corsage and made it smaller than the purple one. Sew it on top.

Step 4:

Add flowers and attach them to the base. I sewed mine, but you can use a glue gun for this purpose. You may also add beads, buttons, pieces of fabric... whatever suits your imagination!
Attach the whole set to the foundation wristlet by sewing it tightly and your wrist corsage is finished!
