Video: How To: Design Corsages with Better & Best Bracelets

Amanda Thomas - Monday, April 09, 2018

Video Summary written for Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by: Lisa B.


In this video demonstration, learn how to create a bright and glimmering corsage with instruction from Vonda LaFever, AIFD, PFCI, CFD. 


This demonstration features two wholesale Fitz Design corsage bracelets – the first is the Princess bracelet, featuring three rows of rhinestone look acrylic pieces, and the second is the Rock Candy bracelet that features four rows of rhinestones. 

Vonda introduces the other elements used in this design. Permanent botanical elements include both blossoms and individual petals of silk Phalaenopsis orchid. Coordinated ribbon picks include a wired pink and orange ribbon along with a softer sheer ribbon in a light coral color. A touch of glitz comes from two different pearl sprays. 

Before beginning, Vonda has already secured the plastic platform to the Princess corsage bracelet. The first step is to lightly secure it again with a length of the “Blended” style ribbon. 

Next, Vonda creates a bow with a combination of the Blended and Sheer styles of ribbon, tying it to the plastic platform with the remainder of the first ribbon. Before double-knotting, she adds the floral rhinestone pearl spray. 

Vonda has also taken time to apply adhesive to each of the accessories that will go into the corsage so that the glue has a little extra time to set up. She adds more adhesive to the plastic platform for durable glue-to-glue contact as she begins to add the individual orchid petals to create a lovely frame around the ribbon bow.

Opposite of the floral rhinestone pearl spray, Vonda adds two bubble pearl sprays for balance and charm. She nestles the full silk orchid blossom in the center of the bow to complete the design, then trims any extra length from the ribbons to tidy up the composition for display. 

The finished design is bright and colorful, with just a touch of glamour. This is a great piece for any season – ideal for brightly themed weddings or proms.
