Corsages for the Mommy-to-Be



Corsage Idea #1

Buy a pacifier, two feeding spoons, a teething ring with rubber beads on a string, a two-foot one-inch ribbon (color of your choosing), a medium-sized rattle and four-to-six pairs of baby socks. Put the teething ring through the pacifier ring, so that the teething ring is half way through ring of the pacifier. Separate the socks and fold before putting on the corsage. Fold each sock from the top down to the toe. Fold the fold down to meet the first fold. Take the two folds and fold them up to meet the top edge of the fold at the top (away from the toe). It should look like a budding flower. With crafting wire, attach all the things at random to the teething ring, spacing the socks evenly.Corsage Idea #2

Make a corsage for the mommy-to-be to wear at the baby shower or make a bouquet of flowers for the nursery. Materials Needed: Aleene's Shrink-it (Opake)
Aleene's Baking Board
Aleene's Reverse Collage Glue
Aleene's Crafting Tissue (pastel colors of your choice)
Aleene's Ultimate Glue Gun and glue sticks
Permanent marker
Template (design of your choice)
Oven or toaster oven
Baby powder
1/4" diameter hole punch
Baby socks
1" wide lace
12-14 gauge wire
20" (1 1/2" wide) Organdy ribbon

For tag, use marker and template to draw desired design onto Shrink-it. Cut out. Punch hole.

Preheat oven to 275' to 300'. Lightly sprinkle Baking Board with baby powder. Place shape on board and place in oven. Bake. Remove when Shrink-it is completely flat. If shape starts to shrink immediately upon being placed in oven, temperature is too hot.

Use Reverse Collage glue to glue tissue paper to back of shape. Let dry. Tear excess tissue from edges.

For rose, start at toe of sock and roll to within 2" of cuff edge. Fold cuff around rolled portion to form rose.

For calyx, cut a 4" length of lace and glue around base of flower.

For stem, cut a 12" length of wire; make 1" loop in one end. Wrap ribbon around wire to cover stem, securing with glue. Glue looped end of stem into base of sock rose.

For leaves, knot 8" lengths of ribbon around stem.

Tie a bow around stem under flower.
