Summer is over in Sweden, but were having some warm days still with sunshine and beautiful foliage. Here and there you can still see some stubborn flowers peaking out, which reminded me that I completely forgot to post the flower brooches I made this summer! (I had a little sneak peak in this post) So here they are, a bit late, like those late blossoms in our autumnal gardens.
They were made especially for a combined hen night/bachelor party. I wanted to make something special for the couple, and on top of making them a distressed and vintage looking treasure map for the day I also made these paper corsages for the entire party.
I cut out a whole bunch of flowers from green, orange and red paper, crunched and curled them and glued them together. I punched out some hearts in black, to pose as pistils, and attached them in the middle with some black stickles.
It really was a lot of fun to make them, and I’m rather impressed with myself that I finished them in time! Most of all it felt great to be able to bring a gift to that special day that was hand made.
