My eldest son Owen accompanied his friend Rebecca to her school-leavers' prom on Tuesday evening (he finished the same school last year) and asked me to order and collect a corsage for his date. The really pretty corsage came in a very plain, boring box so I decided to make one myself to make it a nicer gift. I used 350gms white card for the basic box and covered the sides and top with green paper from DCWV, on the top I cut a smaller square of white card which I edged with some pink inks after rounding the corners with a Bind it All punch, I topped that with another green paper from the same DCWV set and then added the flowers and embellishments, (the flowers are from Wild Orchid and Hobbycraft). I then finished it all off with some wire edged organza ribbon.
There is a pic below of Owen & Rebecca before they set off in the limo, don't they look happy and excited - looking forward to the fun? Unfortunately the evening didn't end too well - Owen landed badly on his ankle before all the dancing started and ended up spending the rest of the night in A&E waiting for an X-ray. Fortunately it's not broken but badly sprained so he's not going anywhere fast for the next few weeks!
