How to Make a Corsage

Adding the Final Leaves

The final leaves really do complete the look of this rose and carnation corsage.  These leaves are bend almost double.

It's going to be placed in the center under the very bottom flower.

You can see that the traditional wired corsage is clustered nicely, with sprays of ribbon loops and different kinds of greenery coming out from all sides.

Clip any overly long ribbon shorter with a clean cut from a pair of scissors.

A bottom view upward shows the mechanics covered.  Now is the time to add a bow at the bottom if you desire.

I'm going to cut off the bottom stem and curl it forward and make sure the cut wires are all smoothly covered with floral tape.  Before doing that, I'm going to add a bit more ivy on the bottom to fill in that empty space.
