Paper Flower Corsage and Boutonnière Tutorial

Ranunculus Wrist Corsage Paper Rose Corsage Poppy Boutonniere Anemone Boutonniere A few weeks ago a reader asked me for some ideas on how to make her paper wedding flowers into corsages and boutonnières. This tutorial was on my list so I pushed it up to the front and here you have it. These wearable paper flowers are not only great for the crafty wedding, but make a perfect Mother’s Day corsage that she can treasure for a long time. I can see them as great prom flowers as well!

In the tutorial below I am showing two ideas for each a corsage and boutonnière. For the corsages the first is a traditional version and with wrist corsages trending right now, the second is an idea of how to make them as well. The boutonnières are much simpler and could be used as a small corsage. The last boutonnière uses floral magnets, which you could easily substitute for two heavy duty magnets you can find at a craft or office store. Enjoy! ~ Lia Paper Corsage and Boutonniere


  1. Hi! Love the tutorial… Question, how would you secure the flowers to say a pearl bracelet? I just want to make sure that nothing will fall apart during the wedding :) Thanks!

    • I would integrate a ribbon into your flower bunch making sure it is very secure. Then, just tie that onto the bracelet maybe with a double knot. You can finish the strands with a bow.

  2. I have made several of your wonderful paper flowers patterns and they all come out beautiful! Thank you, thank you, thank you for these great ideas!
