I started in the floral industry learning how to wire and tape flowers for corsage work. Florists can be stubborn people . . . but I've learned that the new floral adhesive really can be a time saver and creates beautiful corsages that do not come apart!

Cool melt glue and craft glues sometimes crack and become brittle when refrigerated. Hot melt is just a bad idea all the way around.
The newer corsage bracelets in the floral industry are made with large silicone surfaces to make it super easy to glue the corsages.
