I'm Allison Scott with Allieflower and this is how you make a hand corsage. Materials you'll need: two roses, filler flower, greenery, floral tape, gauge wire, flower clippers, wire clippers, a wristlet and ribbon. Take your wire, you'll cut the wire in half. You'll need about six inches of wire. You'll take your rose and you'll cut it as with just to maybe an inch of stem coming out. You'll take your rose with your wire and you put it into the stem at the base of your flower where it comes out the other end and you put your flower in the middle. You take the wire and you bend it down into the stem. You take your tape, your floral tape; you hold it at the base with one finger and pull tight and wrap. As you pull tight with the floral tape, it will become a little sticky and adhere to the stem in the wire. Twist and turn. You'll take your filler flower and you'll cut it just like you did your rose with about an inch of stem. You take your greenery with your rose and you put it along the back, like this. You take your filler flower and put it against the side. You have everything held together at the base of the rose where the tape is and you tape again. Again, using the, holding with your finger and twisting tight. This is the top of your corsage. You'll take your second rose and again, just like before, clip it with about an inch of stem. You'll remove any guard petals that you may have on your rose; with your other piece of wire, just like before, at the base of your rose, halfway through, bend the wire and then tape with your floral tape. You'll take your other piece of greenery and your other piece of filler flower and taping again. Now you have two pieces. You'll take your ribbon and make a bow; three loops on each side and you'll cut. You'll take another piece of your wire; stick it in the main loop and twist. You'll take your two pieces with your roses and you'll bunch them together like this. Take the two legs of the wire on your ribbon and put them underneath and bend this down. And one more time, you'll take your floral tape and you'll cover that wire so it's not to poke anyone on cut the wire in half. You'll need about six inches of wire. You'll take your rose and you'll cut it as with just to maybe an inch of stem coming out. You'll take your rose with your wire and you put it into the stem at the base of your flower where it comes out the other end and you put your flower in the middle.

And one more time, you'll take your floral tape and you'll cover that wire so it's not to poke anyone on the hand when you put this on. Take your wire cutters and cut; so there's about an inch at the bottom, just like this. You'll take your wristlet; take two pieces of the ribbon; thread it through the back. You're going to cut your ribbons pretty short and then you'll attach the top. I'm Allison Scott and that's how you make a hand corsage.
