Have you spotted organza flowers popping up here and there all around Blogland, lately?
Here's my own version of them, and I'd love to share it with you!
I like to mix and match materials and add a second color to perk them up.
Here we go with the simple instructions.
Cut circular shapes and/or petals out of organza or your favorite (preferably synthetic) materials.
Burn the edges up, being careful while doing that. You can burn your fingers (oouch!) and the petal as well. A little practice will lead you to use the flame at the just right distance and in the right position. Someone told me they use tealights, but I prefer this way that allows me much more control on what I'm doing.
This is a basic flower, made of circles only. As you can see, they are of different sizes and materials. Pile up your circles, arranging them pleasantly. You can add shaped petals if you wish, as in the above shots of my flowers.
Hope you have fun with this tutorial. And please, show me your organza flowers! My little heart rejoiced, after I posted the ribbon rose tutorial, hearing it had been inspiring and seeing how everyone had added their special personal touch! A hearty thank you once again to those who shared their zest with me! You made my day.
Have a splendid weekend,
