Also, just an FYI, if you use silk it does still fray a bit, but not the long strands of fray.

Best of luck! I hope to see pics of your roses when you are done!!
thanks! hope you also include this suggestion to connect the strips. makes a big difference/eliminates bulk . . . this also works for those pieces cut on the grain.
