Projects: Beaded Wedding Flowers and Corsages
This ebook will teach you how to make Cornflowers, Morning Glory, Anthurium, Rosemary, Grape Hyacinth, a selection of sculptured leaves and foliage. So, you get a total of nine brand new French beaded flowers. You will then learn how to turn these into beautiful corsages.
You can also use this free online class to learn how to turn the flowers in this ebook into a beautiful wedding bouquet.
This ebook includes videos to demonstrate these brand new French beading techniques: Lacing, Reverse Wrapping, Cone-Shaped Basic, Advanced Single Strands, Split Stem Basic and elongating leaves and petals.
These techniques build on those shown in the original ebook and will allow you to create more elaborate beaded flowers.
Katie also teaches you how to construct corsages for different purposes. The bead flowers can be quite heavy. So they are not always ideal for pinning onto delicate silk fabrics. However, under Katie’s expert guidance, you will learn how to overcome these issues. Katie has developed a clever, yet simple, fastening that avoids the need for pins or brooch backs.
There are instructions for assembling the flowers into corsages in four designs that can be worn in a variety of ways: traditional buttonhole for male wedding guests, wrist corsage or handbag corsage as alternative ideas for the bridesmaids or bride’s mother.
In addition to the unique projects in this book, there is more! The final chapter includes inspiration for corsages made using flowers from the Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets ebook.
So, maybe you are preparing for a wedding? Perhaps you have a school prom coming up? Or would you simply like a beautiful floral corsage for any special occasion? This ebook gives you everything you need to to create wonderful corsages.
