How to Make a Corsage

Finishing the Stem

Now I'm going to finish off the bottom stem of my corsage design.  I could ribbon wrap it, curl it up as is or cut it off shorter.  It's just a matter of personal preference.

If you do cut it, take small nips with a heavy duty pair of wire cutters.  Trying to cut the whole stem that is bulky with corsage tape is hard to do at times.

There will be some sharp points of the individual wires showing after a cut.

Tap them down with the side of your wire cutters and then fold a piece of corsage tape over the end, stretching it so it will stick to the stem.

Mold it in place with your fingers.

Bend upwards with your fingers if you desire.

Continue to smooth out any tears of bulging pieces of tape.

I gave a tight twist on the end.

This gives a nice finished look to the bottom.
