Fancy This: Wrist Corsages


Hello fancy friends! I'm so glad to be here sharing a fun little project with you today! With spring here, bursting with flowers, why not celebrate with a pretty addition to your spring attire? These sweet wrist corsages are simple to make and would be perfect as favors for a little girl's birthday party or as gifts for mom and daughter on Mother's Day. I'll show you how to make your own!

Fancy Pants supplies:
Artist Edition: Filter Embellishments
Summer Soul: Ribbon
Summer Soul: Sandcastle patterned paper

other supplies:
Tombow: Fastener Tabs
spray ink
butterfly punch
velvet ribbon
tiny stapler
sewing machine

1. Gather items to create your filter flower(s) and choose 4 filters for each flower you will create. Lay them out and mist with spray ink. Allow to dry.

2. Layer filters. Make a circle shape with your hand and lay filter over your hand.

3. With opposite hand and using your index finger, press the center of the filter flowers into the circle of your hand. This will gather and bunch them into a cone shape.

4. Pinch the underside and attach a tiny staple to hold all of the layers together.

5. Now gather remaining items.

6. Trim wide Summer Soul ribbon to fit the wrist of the recipient, allowing an extra 1/2 inch on each end. Stitch down Faster Tabs at opposite ends of ribbon (stitch one on the RIGHT side of the ribbon and one of the WRONG side of the ribbon - about 1/4 inch from the ends). Fold ends in 1/2" and stitch down.

7. Fold velvet ribbon as shown and stitch down.

8. Stitch filter flower over veltvet ribbon as shown.

9. Attach small paper butterflies, punched from Summer Soul: Sandcastle paper, to filter flower (I used a tiny staple). Ta-da!

Here's one more photo of my girls modeling these corsages. Happy spring!!
