Step one: 

Bend the wire in a shape like this and cut off  tape to add over it:

Cover both sides, but make sure the corners are uncovered as at these points the ribbon for attching the corsage to the writs wil be attached.

Next step is to sort out the leaves I wanted same seized ones, to get a nicer result. This is glue specially invented for fresh flowers and leaves. It wil not burn the leaves or flowers like a gluegun would.  Tip: When you first glue all your leaves  before actually adding them. The first leave with glue is already little dry and it wil stay better.

start working from boths ends towards the middle

top side is finished and makes a nice base for the flowers

but the backside also need some attention. It is not good when you can see how it is made.  So cover that side too, either with leaves or even fabric if you want. Just make sure you use materials which don't itch or give an allergic reaction.

the back side is covered with bigger leaves

Now bend it over in the shape it wil need to have when completely finished. If I wouldn't do so, you might end up with uncovered parts after bending.

I added a big dot of glue on the paper and dipped my flowers  (Gypshophilla) in there before adding it to where i want to have it.

I made sure the middle has more "volume" as the sides

Adding more and more flowers. The Gypshopu\illa makes it easy for the flowers to attach and stay upwards

The ribbons also needs to be attached, find the spot where you can see the bended wire, put the ribbon through . You can also add the ribbon before you start glueing, but the risk some glue ends up on the ribbon is heigh ;-)

If you make it hald a day before you actually need it, best place to store it til the moment supreme is in a fridge. put it in a  plastic bag and add it in your vegatable storage place of the fridge around 8-10 degrees C is fine. 

Enjoy the compliments you wil surely get!! 

This idea can also be made for a piece in your hair. Leave it flat instead of bending it and use pins throught the bedned places instaed of ribbon.
