Step 1: Take your wristlet/bracelet/cuff and tie a ribbon around the top. Cut off the excess ribbon.

Tip: By tying a ribbon around the top you can avoid gluing directly to your wristlet/bracelet/cuff, this way you can reuse it for other events.

Step 3: Cut and glue on silk leaves to the exposed ribbon on the wristlet. You can pull these from your silk flower sprays or use corsage leaves. 

Tip: Hot glue does not adhere well to smooth non-porous surfaces like glass, metal, or plastic. Avoid gluing to these textures for a sturdy, long-lasting creation.

Step 5: Add some sparkle to your corsage! We chose to add a faux crystal spray. Take your crystal spray and cut off a 3.5" piece. Cover the end in glue and stick it into the corsage under your flower head. Press down firmly to secure it's position.

Tip: It's best to have the longer hanging pieces along your outer arm, away from your hand.

Step 7: To give our corsage texture, we chose to add succulent blooms. Add the succulents to the side with the crystals, nestling them in between the flower bloom and the crystals to fill the empty space.

The best feature about this corsage is the ability to reuse the sparkly cuff.
