The perfect gamer-geek boutonnieres!

By on Feb 2nd

Tribe member and moderator vintageCobalt just made the the coolest boutonnieres for her groom and the groomsmen. The mini Xbox controllers are the cutest things EVER! Right about now, I'm sure you're dying to know how these were made. Well, allow her to explain…

I made the controllers out of Crayola Model Magic. I just shaped them as best as possible and let dry overnight. The next day I added a piece of floral wire to the back and tacked it on using some more of the Model Magic. Once that was dry, I added a pick made of beads in our wedding colors and a small leaf for the background. The groom also has a brooch in his to match my brooch bouquet.

Once the pieces were all together, I wrapped them in a ribbon to match the bridesmaids bouquets and added a bit of hot glue to make sure it would stay. So super easy to make and something that the guys will all love to wear!
