Boutique flower tutorial

I love these flours they have so many uses and they are super easy to make.

All you need is
a candle and a lighter
Fabric like
silky fabrics
 needle thread

Next cut out the shape you want
it dose not have to be perfect.
as you can see
Now place pattern on fabric folded into 4 layers or
more depending on how many petals you want.

Then cut them out.
Now light the candle

and carefully melt the edges of all the petals
don't panic if they don't look perfect that's what makes them so charming.

Now arange the pettels how to make the flower

At this time you can stick lace netting or what ever you want to jazz the flower up

Pick out what you want in the center This one I used a jeweled button.

And this one I used pearls
Make sure you sew it a few time and then tie a knot in the thread

Next put felt on the back
Now you can add what ever you want on the back a pin to make it a brooch or a Barret ETC.
Oh ya and they look adorable on baby tutus
I just love these flowers and think they are very chic looking.

I have a fun picture frame project in the works to use these flowers with.
Happy flower making..
Oh yeah my non sewing friends(Ter)
can make these too.
