So this year, I thought I would make her one that doesn't get tossed the next day- although I am pretty sure she keeps its for longer than a day! I cut out the flowers from the FS cart and hot glued them together on top of a pretty white ribbon. I used white and pink paper, put pearls in the pink roses. I was going to buy silk greens to put behind it, but I couldn't find any I liked so I made my own as well and embossed them, and I am glad I did, as they were the right size!
*** Sizes for the flowers: I cut the scalloped flower, 3 of those at 6" ( of course, rolling them they come out a little different sized each one, and then I cut the other little flowers at 3"-4". I played with the sizes, depending on how big or small you want your corsage. I cut the leaves at 1-3/4" and then just placed them behind the flowers. I used my Bowdabra to make the bow, and then I hot glued the flowers onto the ribbon, and to finish the back so it wasn't a bit hot glue mess, I made another ribbon and glued to the back.*** I hope all this makes sense, please feel free to contact me with questions!
I wanted to give them to her in a "corsage box" so I cut one using the treasure chest from Sweet Treat cartridge, added a ribbon and placed some pretty pins in there as well.
They don't smell as pretty, but they will last longer than a day or two, and my Mother will love it, because I made it for her. She loves homemade things, and I don't think it gets anymore homemade than this... Hahahahaha
My mom is my very best friend in the whole wide world!!! She is the reason I craft as I watched her make so many things by hand and give them away... I love you MOM!!!
