Recycled Box & Prom Corsage

Last weekend was Prom for my son and I wanted to make something for his girlfriend that she could keep. So instead of a corsage (that costs and arm and a leg nowadays) I opted to make her a corsage/bracelet.

This is what I came up with:
I got glass beads and a silk flower from Joann's. I made a 3 strand pearl bracelet and then attached the flower   over the strand connector. I then added a pearl to the center of the flower to pull it together. I think it turned out great and it is something she can wear again and keep forever.

I then found a box to put the bracelet in. 

Decorated it all up with scrap paper, ribbon and a flower cut from Flower Shoppe.
 (I had to blow the dust off the 'ole Cricut.) 

Perfect fit!!

His girlfriend loved it and I received several compliments on it. :)

And finally, the gorgeous couple...
