Make Crepe Paper Flower Corsages

So, since we're right in the middle of wedding season, here's a unique idea for a handmade corsage: use ruffled crepe paper streamers to create a large flower and then paint it. This would be really pretty for an arty wedding or for a less-formal event like a wedding rehearsal dinner or bachelorette party. These would be pretty wrist corsages, too. You could attach them to a pin and then make a fabric cuff to pin them on. Not so into the corsage idea, but like the concept? How about decorating your reception tables or your pews with these blossoms? Or, if you're not planning a wedding but you ARE attending one, use one of these pretty blooms as a topper on your gift box. This great idea is by Stephanie Lynn at Under the Table and Dreaming.
