Singed Flower Tutorial

Alright, so here's the promised singed flower tutorial! I glammed it up a little bit.
Take your satiny material, and cut various sized circles from it. If you want to mix it up a little, use tulle circles for every other layer.
Take your satin circles, and run them over a flame. 
Do NOT do this with the tulle, you won't get the same effect!
Hot glue the layers together, largest on the bottom, and top it off with beads or a rhinestone.
If you want a more petally look, cut your satin in long ovals, like these.
After you singe the petals, stack them slightly offset from each other, and glue or sew the petals to secure them.
These are great embellishments for anything! Put a clip on the back and make it into a cute hair piece, or sew it onto a pillow! I've also seen them sewn on ribbon and made into a necklace.They're so sweet an elegant!
