Vintage Inspired Corsage

I love vintage corsages.
 I love that they have a history. Perhaps worn for a high school prom, an Easter Sunday or Mother's Day.
\

A quick and simple tutorial on how to make your own vintage inspired corsage.
Supplies: 
 Flower- Prima
Patterned ribbon, paper -Melissa Frances
Vintage Glamour Post-Artchix Studio
Heart Mirror- Heidi Swapp
Feathers, buttons, sheer ribbon- craft supply

Cut out a  piece of paper to fit the back of the flower
Cut a piece of sheer ribbon and glue to the back of the paper. Make this as long or short as you'd like. Corsages look beautiful around the wrist, neck, waist or ankle.
Cut out a couple pieces of paper and ribbon. They're each about 2" long.
Now just stick in your embellishments wherever you please! I used  Zip Dry to glue everything in and it holds like a charm.
Finished product! Now, don't you look lovely? :)
