Art Idea: Silk Flower Corsages Using OMA Art

February 11, 2019

This blog category is created to share with you some practical OMA art ideas. We will continue to update this, so please keep checking back. We will also publish your ideas that you would like to share. If you have an idea for this blog category, please send it to along with photos and we will give you credit for your contribution.

Here is the first idea: Save money and use OMA artwork to make your own corsages and boutonnieres for OMA artists to wear at the art show.

Purchasing corsages and boutonnieres can cost about $25-$30/person. This silk flower corsage costs less than $2 to make and it features OMA art as background leaves.

Yes, they are paper leaves cut from OMA scrap art pieces. You’ll save money and they will appreciate the souvenir. For more information on how to create corsages, YouTube offers a wide variety of tutorials.
