I am trying to figure out what kind of corsages to make for the grandmothers and mothers (and possibly aunts) for our wedding where we are using mostly paper
flowers. I feel like the corsages that pin to the chest will get crushed, so i am opting for wrist ones. Here was my first attempt:
My mom does not like the three tiny roses clustered together, but I think its cute. Another idea I am toying with would look like this:

i made the flowers basically following this tutorial:
except i used tacky glue to secure instead of tape (that was a nightmare attempt). To cut the petals, I bought a medium sized heart punch from hobby lobby. best $10 I ever spent because it makes these flowers sooo much easier!
Then I glued three of the flowers together where their pointy bottoms pointed toward each other and hot glued the base to a button (altho I need to figure out a more permanent way of attaching them, the hot glue isn’t holding up) Then i hot glued three pearls onto the bottom in a row so that it could be strung onto the beading stretchy string. The corsage initially rocked a lot, so i added two pearls in front and behind the row of pearls under the button for stability. I hope that makes sense!

These are great! So pretty! Did you string the bracelets yourself or did you buy them? I would love to know how you did them or where you bought the bracelets.

I think it looks awesome no matter which route you choose.
About how long does it take you to make a rose?
PS We are date twins! Congrats 🙂

For the bracelets I honestly just bought pearl beads from hobby lobby ($2.99 normal price, and I always wait for them to go on sale) and strung them onto that clear beading stretchy wire/string stuff (descriptive I know)
Each rose takes maybe 10 minutes, but make sure the glue dries a little between each petal or it will be a giant mess!
For my own bouquet I am torn… I have been making larger roses similar to this but even more realistic from the instrutions here:
they look really pretty, here are a few:
I am thinking I will pick one orange and two neutrals to make my bouquet, but now I really am starting to consider a pearl bouquet instead…. opinions would be great!

I love the paper rose bouquet, how about adding in a lot of pearls on picks??

These are really gorgeous. I was trying to figure out if I wanted to make a corsage for my reception since I’m already married.

I love them!! I am trying to figure out how to make corsages using the Japenese flowers. I love how the flowers look together! Thanks!!
