As the Sweetheart Valentine dance approached, my date and I decided that instead of buying corsages we would make them ourselves. We decided on crafting them out of newspaper to save a few bucks and a few trees. This build took a little under 2 hours and cost about $5 in total (the only thing I had to buy was the ribbons).

Step 1: Materials

  • Hot glue gun + hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrushes (one flat brush, one fan brush)
  • Newspaper
  • Wire or fake flower stems
  • Ribbon
  • Paint
  • Elastic
  • A paper plate

Fair warning: I say 'rose' and 'glue' quite a bit in the tutorial.
