This flower corsage is actually quite versatile – you can pin it to your lapel, use it on a gift package, or embellish the lid of a box or jar with it. I combined three different sets of Spellbinders dies to create this one-of-a-kind paper flower corsage.

Spellbinders Grand Calibur diecutting machine
Spellbinders Nestabilities Majestic Elements – Opulent Ovals die set
Spellbinders Shapeabilities – Foliage Two die set
Spellbinders Shapeabilities – Spiral Blossom One die set
Green and yellow cardstock
Crinkly handmade art paper
Glitters – green and yellow
Buttons, small bead and bling
Pencil and small cylindrical vial
1. Die-cut a medium solid oval from green cardstock and a smaller lacy-edge oval from yellow cardstock – glue the yellow on top of the green oval, off-center to create a base for the corsage. Die-cut some of the smallest ovals to use as accent leaves.
2. Die-cut two spiral blossoms from crinkly art paper. Starting with the outside end, wrap one spiral around a pencil. Keep the bottom edge of the spiral flush against itself and add a little glue in a few spots as you coil it around the pencil to create a tight bloom. Slide it off the pencil and let dry.
3. Make a larger bloom with second spiral by wrapping it around a small vial (I used my glitter container) instead of a pencil.
4. Die-cut a variety of leafy foliage vines from the green and yellow cardstock. Brush glue on the leaf tips and sprinkle glitter over the glue.
5. Stack and glue 3 buttons together with a smaller one on top, then glue the stack inside the hole of the larger bloom. Add glitter to the tips of the petals.
6. Glue a small bead inside the center of the smaller bloom.
7. When all the glitter and glue is dry, arrange the blooms, accent leaves and vines on the oval base as and glue into place as desired.
8. Glue on some crystal bling accents in a few places; glue a pin finding to the back if you plan to wear it.
