Pink and Purple Wrist Corsage

Dear Love,

Just a quick post to inform all the lovely brides out there that Tan's Hobbies still exists. hahahahahahahaha, just kidding =P

Receive quite a number of emails asking whether I'm still doing the wrist corsage customization or not. The answer is: "Öf course YES, I'm still and will keep creating!!". It's just I'm too lazy busy for updating my blog. Thank you so much for your kind understanding. Thank you so much for all the brides who trusting me to design the wrist corsages.

Anyway, here is the latest wrist corsage I made for one awesome and sweet bride in Singapore. Gladys ordered 12 wrist corsages for her lovely sisters. Her wedding colour theme was sweet pink-purple combination. She wanted to make it more special and personalize, so I customize the white clay stone with the sisters name stamped on it plus DIY the felt purse to carry the corsages it self. Truly hope that they will love it.


Since Gladys purchase more than S$80.00, I designed for her one wedding chalkboard layout and also one small wedding couple paper clip =)
