Unfortunately, I got snowed in today. Fortunately, we have tons of plastic bags floating around the house!!
This is a boutonniere I made for my fellow for an upcoming black tie event (we trade homemade corsages every year). I first made plastic fabric by sandwiching three layers of plastic bag (colors on the outside, white in between) between two pieces of freezer paper and ironing them on medium. The result was heavy but very flexible, and with a really neat wrinkled texture (maybe that was an accident from letting the iron sit too long in one spot... ).
I then used this tutorial to construct the basic flower shape: http://www.sustainlane.com/reviews/how-to-make-flowers-from-plastic-bags/W72DITJHTHYAMDYSZMKA3X8BU2SB
I then cut out two green ovals for leaves, folding one tip of each lengthwise and twisting it to make them more 3-D. Last, I sewed the leaves and the flower to a brooch pin. Et voila! Flowers in February!
