Lily Corsages

Hello Everyone!

I made these corsages using the Sunrise Lily Collection this week!  I really had no idea if this was going to be an easy project or not, but once I had all my materials ready, they literally took less than half an hour to assemble both of them! 

I created all the lilies first from white cardstock, sponged on yellow and pink ink and used green Viva 3D stamp paint for my leaves.

I had some small craft sticks (or are those coffee stirrers??) that I used as my base. I hot glued some gathered tulle fabric onto the sticks, then added my flowers, tucked in the leaves, sprays and ribbon.  No real plan, just sort of followed some googled photos of corsages that I found to get the design somewhat realistic!  Once the corsage was assembled, I turned it over and hot glued a jewelry pin blank to the stick so they could be pinned on your favorite Mom, Easter Date, etc.! 

So this turned out to be much easier than I expected and now I have plenty of lilies left over to make several more to give away as gifts! I'm also thinking it's a fun way to use up some of the other leftover Heartfelt flowers I have waiting to be used on a project!!  "Bonus!"

The specific, step-by-step instructions are on today's blog at Heartfelt Creations!  Leave me a comment if you make some too!  I'd love to come see your work!!
