It wouldn't be a New Year's party without a festive corsage for your guests! Check out one of our all-time favorite projects on the Craftwell blog, featuring:
Lyssa's Party Corsage
This week, our challenge was to use our sponsor and make something geared towards a party. It was open to anything. So I came up with these babies: Corsage Name Tags!
So these were very simple to assemble, believe it or not.
I also used lace I had on hand along with a brown coffee filter.
I started with the coffee filter at the bottom. I wanted to made the circle smaller so I gathered some of the filter in the middle and secured it with a simple staple.
Next layer was lace that I hot glued in a circle straight onto the filter
I made flower by cutting out 2 - 2" strips of the cardstock then bent them back and forth. I attached the 2 strips on both ends to make a circle then smashed it so it would make a flower.
Next I used the scalloped circle image from my Jen Allyson's SD card, and I used my stamps from Unity stamps to make a flag and cut that out. I used some other abc stamps I had on hand to stamp my name. I stuck that below the scallop circle.
From the same image card, I cut out a cool vintage frame circle out of cardstock to go on top. I stamped a "5" from Unity Stamps right in the middle. Almost done! I hot glued 2 pieces of lace on the back of the corsage that now hang down.
I grabbed a safety pin and some scrap felt and hot glued it on the back
Aaaaaaaand, we're done. What do you guys think?
Personally, I would wear this to church as an embellishment to my sweater! Seriously! ( I would probably take my name off though...and the #...because people would think i'm weird having my name on it...lol)
Perfect accent for any party, whether it's a birthday party or a wedding!
