This is, without a doubt, the most comfortable wrist corsage you will ever wear. It is easy to prepare ahead of the event and can adjust to fit comfortably.
For my wrist corsage bracelet I up-cycle the plastic inner of floral tape.
Cut the plastic inner from a floral tape open.
Bend the white loop to open up a bit more...
... until it comfortably fit around your wrist
Gently sand the cut sections to remove all sharp ends
Place three sections of double sided tape in the inside of the loop
And three sections on the outside.
Design note: You can also glue the ribbon to the plastic loop
Measure a length of ribbon to fit twice around the plastic loop with some to spare for a bow.
Fold the ribbon in half to get the middle point
Open the ribbon and remove the protective covering from the double sided tape. Start to glue the middle point of the ribbon to the inside middle of the loop.
Tape the ribbon to the loop around the open edges...
... and meeting in the middle of the outside of the loop. Open half of the double sided tape and secure
Leaving some ribbon to dangle loosely
Secure the opposite side.
Cut the ribbon neatly
Tie the ribbon ends in a decorative knot or bow
Fit the bracelet and adjust if need be
It should just hug your wrist
Glue in the floral material...
Making sure it is secure
As an alternative you can also cut away the dangling ribbon and glue on the bow
Neatly secure the ribbon by smoothing it down
