DIY with The Fab Miss B: Florist Style Corsage Packaging




Remember the crepe paper roses we made awhile back? I turned a few of mine into corsages. My mother always bought me a corsage to wear to church on Easter Sunday and I thought I'd mail a few out this Spring to keep the tradition alive. I added some feathered butterflies, and some velvet millinery leaves and an alligator clip so these can be worn in the hair or pinned on a spring frock.

I just wanted to share a fun and inexpensive way to package them. I saved a few clear plastic berry and take away containers, used a bit of goo gone to get the labels off, gave them a good wash, filled them with crinkly paper "grass", and ta da- it looks like they came right from the florist (and they won't get smushed in the mail!)

Do you have any fun Easter traditions?

Here's my family easter tradition/story: Even after we reached adulthood, my mother would still make us easter baskets. but instead of overflowing with trinkets and candy necklaces, they'd be filled with mascara, lottery tickets, and tiny bottles of fancy booze... it is my opinion that one is never too old for an easter basket.

What a great idea to pack the flowers in take-away containers! I was looking for a way on how to pack my fabric flowers today and I got my answer here! Thank you :)
