Boutonniere Idea

I have been struggling with the spelling for “boutonniere”. I have to google it all the time just to get it right!!

Since we are having a school chic theme, I wanted our boutonnieres to be quirky and fun! I saw some cute boutonnieres that have miniature boats, tennis racket, violins, dice, etc and thought I could do the same! I came up with the idea to incorporate miniature school related items such as pencil, crayon, book, school bag, blackboard, etc into our boutonnieres to be mixed with ribbons and fabrics. I haven’t decided on the final design yet but what the heck, I’ll figure it out sooner or later =)

Since it’s troublesome to scour miniature version of these school supplies, I decided to ask someone to create the miniatures out of polymer clay.

Can’t wait to see the final designs! I will receive the miniatures when we come home this December and then I will purchase all the materials in the PI as well and assembly will be in Singapore. The boutonnieres for the principal sponsors will be more formal and won’t have the miniatures but will still be DIYed and made from fabric flowers.
