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 already on my list, so I pushed it up to the front and here you have it! These wearable paper flower DIY corsage and boutonnieres are not only great for the crafty wedding, but make a perfect Mother’s Day corsage that she can treasure for a long time. Of course they would be great as prom flowers as well. And oh-so affordable!
In the tutorial below I am showing two ideas each for a DIY corsage and boutonnière. Find your favorite flower template on the site, and craft away! For the corsages, the first is a traditional version. With wrist corsages trending right now, the second is an idea of how to make those 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
