  • Take your wristlet band (S3376 or s33761) and bend in the 4 metal prongs to make an elongated design space.
  • Take 4 silk ivy leaves (S26145) and cut the wire stems off at the base of the leaf.
  • Imagine the wristlet is a compass, using Oasis Floral Adhesive (S3083), glue 1 leaf in the north position followed by gluing your second leaf in the south position.
  • Glue your third and fourth leaves in the east and west position so that the bases of both leaves meet in the middle.
  • Construct a bow using ribbon, tulle, or a combination of the 2 and adhere it to the center of your silk leaf base.
  • Glue in fresh greens like Ming Fern (G1076) or Ruscus Italian Tips (G1108) and fillers like Waxflower (35309) to provide your corsage with shape, texture, and added structure.
  • Cut the heads of your flowers, in this case Yellow Babe spray roses (30254), off of their stems at the base of each flower head to create a flat even surface to add glue to.
  • Apply glue to the base of your flower head and place in desired position, repeat this step until desired style is achieved.
  • Insert desired design accents such as; rhinestones (S9397), metal leaves (S30272), pearls (S25141), feathers (S20775), etc.
  • Fill in gaps and holes with filler until desired fullness is achieved.
  • Allow glue to set for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Mist corsage with a flower finishing spray such as Crowning Glory (S18919) or Finishing Touch (S6716).
  • Place corsage in cooler.
  • Relax! You’re finished!
