DIY: Making a Corsage & Boutonniere


How to Make a Corsage -- powered by eHow.com

For my Retro Prom Birthday Party, I'm thinking about making Matt a boutonniere and myself a wrist corsage. I know I've seen lots to super-cool non-floral boutonnieres on wedding blogs, but now that I need an idea, I can't find any. Any links to share?

Also, I came across a pretty helpful video for making floral corsages, if anyone needs it.

etsy.... there a a thousand types of non-floral bout's and corsages. just search for them. there'll be plenty. and the process for assembling them is identical to this corsage video.

i'm making all of the corsages and bout's for the wedding, and it's such an easy project, so i've no doubt you can tackle this. (i made the fabric flowers for corsages via the tutorial you offered!) we were even able to do it free from just extra fabrics and supplies i had lying around my apartment.

That is a pretty big bout! I don't know about using a whole bloomed rose & a big bow, but I like the instructions.
