I have been playing with sheer fabric to make these gorgeous flowers. All you need is sheer fabric cut into several size circles, I used 3 inch and 2 inch circles. Once you have cut the circles I layered them in 2’s and 4’s to create the flowers.
You then take a tea light candle and pick up your sheer circles with tweezers and hold it over the flame. The closer you get to the flame the more curl you can have. Now remember you are working with FLAMMABLE fabric! It CAN catch fire! I blow it out but if you are not comfortable with blowing it out keep a small bowl of water next to you that you can drop the lit fabric in, safety first. Here are some samples I have created:
You can add buttons, gems, pearls or anything you like in the centers. I used Jolee’s bling and House of 3 gems.
Now I made this 6 x 6 page for someone very special.
This is the front with a special message inside~love how my flowers came out. Then this is the back:
Love my bears! The extra thick mulberry paper really makes them pop. I added stickles to the dress made with a junkitz flower. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hugz, Z
