Mother’s Day Paper Raffia Corsage Craft

Mother’s Day corsages are a wonderful way to make mom feel special. However, instead of buying a corsage design your own unique and handmade paper raffia corsage. The Mini Bowdabra makes designing paper floral corsages easy and mom will love her beautiful gift and keepsake.

Materials Needed:

Instructions:

1. Begin by placing the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler onto the Mini Bowdabra. Cut 18″ of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half and place it into the Mini Bowdabra.

2. Next, place an elastic around the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler before the 2″ mark. The elastic will be used to hold the raffia down as you are creating the paper petals.

9. Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back. Position the raffia so that it is no longer stacked like an accordion but rather held tightly wrapped together. Knot the wire and trim away excess.

10. Using hot glue, glue the raffia tails together so that the flower won’t pull apart when you are working with it. Next, add some small floral leaves and wrap it all in floral top for a nice finish.
