A fun corsette I created and used my
simple scrunch flower as the corsage for the dress.
Supplies you’ll need.
- 6 punched circles (1 1/2″ in size and it looks better if the paper double sided)
- 1 pencil
- glue dots
- your favorite distressing ink
Step 1: scrunch 5 of the 6 circles so they become
more pliable and aged looking. (the sixth circle
will serve as your base.) Then grab
your distressing ink and ink the edges.
Step 2: Using your pencil (eraser end), grab one
of your scrunched circles and place the pencil
in the center of the circle and wrap the circle around
Step 3: Place a glue dot at the bottom of the circle
as it’s still wrapped around the pencil.
Step 4: Then begin placing each circle on the your
sixth circle which is your base, glue dot side down
so it adheres onto the base. I usually begin in the
center of the circle and then begin filling in the circle
so it’s even and starts to form the petals for my flower.
Here’s what it should look like once you’ve filled
it in with all your distressed circles.
Step 6: I take sometime to fluff and work the circles
so it makes the flower fuller.
And Voila, here’s your finished product.
Step 7: You want to take it a step further?
Push down your circles to flatten them from the
Step 8: Then cutting another smaller circle, use that as
the middle base and adhere on top of the flattened
Step 9: Top it off with a fun brad or button.
And there you go, a fun 3 dimensional flower sure to
add some scrap flare to your paper crafting projects.
