Elizabeth Holcombe's corsages


Oh my God, how fun was to make this corsage...

Elizabeth's tutorial is so easy I didn't have any trouble to make it! Go enjoy making one for yourself!
I made it with dark green and black velvet ribbon and then was going to add some smaller ribbon like the tutorial says with a lace ribbon I have that is so pretty but then thought of making a little crochet flower to the center and then it was too much the lace, the crochet... lol...
And finally I could use my pretty green cabochon I have from long time ago and didn't know know how to use it!!! I sewed it to the flower and then to the corsage and pin. 
I love it!!! Hope you'll like it too!!!!
Thanks so much Elizabeth!!!! Was so much fun to join your challenge!

I love the crochet idea and the cabochon! I have some cab's also and haven't quite figured out where to use them.
