The plastic inside of a roll of Florist tape becomes a Wrist Corsage
I love the idea of body flowers.
You don't really need a reason to wear a floral wrist corsage but up-cycling the inner ring from your finished floral tape is most certainly cause for celebration: Yippee! I am getting a new roll of tape and Yippee! I am reducing the amount of trash my design room generates.
And to take the idea of ecologically sound design another step further: The succulents in the corsage will lasts for more than a month before some of the leaves will develop tiny roots that can then be picked off to plant.

Design note: I left the corsage on my desk to see how it ages. This is the corsage one month later. If you look carefully you will see tiny roots forming on the succulents
Cut the plastic, sand and wrap with ribbon
Succulents are really trendy right now. Not just as potted plants but also in designs. All the way from floral accessory to fashion accessory- right on trend!
Design 3:Wedding Tiara. This is a real Cinderella design, one moment scrubbing pots and the next getting ready for the ball.
Design 2: Up-cycle drinking straws to make tiny test tubes to hold the orchids on my willow twig blind.
