Help please. I could use some feedback on these corsages. I blended a couple ideas from other bee’s and came up with these. I feel that they are missing something. Ribbon? Feathers? What do you think? They will be pinned or wrist corsages depending on what the Mothers choose. Also, our colors are black, gray, and ivory, is it ok that they don’t match completely? I wanted nuetral so that it would work with the mothers dresses. I could change the darker gold to gray so that it matches. Any feedback is appreciated, I have plenty of time to change them.

I love these, very intricate and detailed. Have you thought about putting a leaf design behind the flower for abit of depth. Leaf skeletons might work well, or maybe perhaps make a few using a darker grey fabric to tie in your colours. Good luck.
I’d love to know how you made these, they are very pretty 🙂

I think some nice feathers may add to it. They’re beautiful!

I love them!!! They would fit so perfect for my wedding HAHA.. I would also love to know how you made them? What was the cost each?
I agree wtih ragingwave, perhaps use a darker fabric (charcoal grey) in between the ivory stems. I think the design looks perfect as is.. I’m a believe that simple is classy :0)

I looked up Kanzashi Flowers on Google and improvised a little. They are very easy to make and I just hotglued everything. Super easy. Let me know if you can’t find the links and I will email you some. Would you believe they cost less than $9 total? I spent $7 total for 1 foot of each fabric and got 3 buttons (center piece) for $1.75. Gotta love Joann Fabrics. The bigger flower is about 4″. I have plenty of fabric to make more and they don’t take very long. I think I will try to add a combination of feathers and maybe organza ribbon. I will post an updated version.

Have you tried making them with the darker color in the middle of the lighter petal? Like layer them. Large then small on top. I have seen a few pics with it like that and it is pretty elegant, and then make a few more petals so the flower is full. If you want more add a tuft of toulle behind it. Cut a circle, sew the edge loosely all the way areound, lease long srting then pull them to gather it so you have a bag. Then push the gathered point in the center so it is now a finished edge circle and glue it behind so some of the tuoulle is hanging out behing to give it umph. Maybe that will help it. You can always do that with lace or any other sheer you like even a black net would give it a vintage flare. You’ll figure out something that works for you, good luck 🙂
