Prom wristlet and wrist corsage

Wrist corsage speak causal and fun.  That’s exactly the attitude young adults want their prom night to be. Baby roses with a touch of filler is all you need to create a beautiful wristlet or wrist corsage.  Each flower blossom is wired and taped before attaching to a strap.  As you can see, ribbon is added to compliment the theme color.  Have fun time.
