I posted awhile back with pics of a wrist corsage I made with fake flowers. I tried again, this time with real flowers. First, cut a small sliver in a ribbon so that a bit of stem sticks through. The only trick is to artfully place pins through the stem so that they are not sticking out. I want to use big, fluffy, (and hardy!) garden roses. What do you think? One flower or three flowers?

i think one flower is enough…they look big enough that 3 seems like it would be awkward to use that hand.

I liked the one flower better than the three flowers. It was almost too much…I think that it would take a special person to pull off three flowers!

I think I’d go with only one flower, too. Three might be big enough to get in the way. You did a great job, though! Looks good!

I agree… its a bit big. I like the idea of the flowers around in a circle (I remember your test run a few weeks back). Can you get smaller roses – like teacup size or something?

I think one flower….3 seems way too big!! You could always put one little flower on each side if you don’t think one is enough.

Out of curiosity, where did you buy your garden roses?

The roses in the pics are from Wal-Mart (I think), and they’re just regular roses.
I wound up ordering garden roses from theflowerexchange.com – 72 for $131. It was the lowest price I could find.
