Flower corsage -For Special Ladies

I was asked to make a few flower corsages for ladies for our church enrichment activity. Each month the leaders want to spotlight one lady and let her know how special she is and present her with a corsage to wear. Below are the flowers that I made.

I used the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge and used 4 different flower shapes. Each flower has 6 layers cut at 3", 2.75", 2.5", 1.75", 1.5", and 1". The leaf was cut at 2.5"
To make my flowers I started by getting each flower layer and leaf wet then wrinkled it up, then let it air dry, or used my hair dryer to speed up the process, when they were mostly dried, I gently unfolded each layer then finished drying the flowers. Each layer was brushed using distressed ink, then I layered each flower together and added a vintage brad, glued the leaves on the back side and added a bit of cream color twill fabric (If you look closely in the photo you can see it). I printed a tag "I am Special" on vellum cardstock for the finising touch.

Thanks so much for visiting today, I love comments.
Have a great day!
