Flower Corsage

Is everyone still loving all the new releases from CHA?

I am feeling a little over whelmed and grateful that I have a few weeks to make some choices about what to get 'right now' and what will have to wait until later.  Since I started crafting again I don't recall there ever being so very many fabulous products releasing at the same time. 

But I digress, my fabulously brilliant niece is in theater at her high school and she has been practicing and preparing for the production of Footloose.

I am excited and anxious for her and I know she will be fantastic.  She is one of the most amazing, smart and talented young woman.

One of the scenes in the play is the prom.  She asked that I make her a corsage. Of course I said yes and am honored that she asked me.

After I said, I panicked - what was I thinking! I have never done anything like this and had no clue where to start.  So of course, I hunted and stalked everyone's blog until I found what I thought would work for her and something I could handle making.

I found inspiration through Aphra's blog at this POST.  She is super talented and crafty and I love reading her blog.

Supplies: Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe, tulle, petaloo fabric flowers, and prima feather flower-french roast.

Please let me know what you think or improvements.

After I made the flower, I realized I didn't know how or what to attach it to. So I used a little felt and elastic strap that I got with ribbon scraps from Hobby Lobby, with a button closure.

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
