Fabric- I have no clue (sorry but will find out for you) The lt purple and cream, I think are satin, those do not burn or curl as well. The Burg, Dk Purple are a different material and curl and krinkle great. I bought the lt purple and cream in the bargain box at JoAnn's probably 8 months ago. I brought the lt purple with me to Hobby Lobby last week and the lady told me, but I don't remember. ( but will find out for you ladies)

I do 3 different sizes (with a 4 petal pattern I made with paper, which I cut by hand) that are not perfect and I think that makes them look better. I singed the edge of the flowers using the side of the candle. Then I use the top of the flames the curl the petals and then hold it (ever so CAREFULLY) over the flames, just low enough for the heat to grab the material and make it kind of pucker/krinkle. I love the effect that it does for the flowers. I do 4-large/3- medium/ 4 small. Then arrange them and swe in the center.

The centers I have been going to the "red Barn"/jockey lot flea market and buying costume rings. The bling twists right off the ring. First time I got 12 for $10.00 and last week I got 24 for $15.00. I need to get in on the bling buy, but will still go buy the rings for the colored center ones.

Hopefully my mumble-jumble will help someone out...lol
Those are gorgeous! Can't believe those were your first try. How big do you make each layer. I tried to cut mine into petals and bow did I have a mess. Do you cut your petals very deep into the material or just around the edge? I had cut mine deep into the material, almost to the center and they were just a floppy mess. I tend to get mine to curl too much and they look like a birds nest. You did great!

I agree with everybody. Your flowers are gorgeous very hard to believe it's your first try... I have been hesitant to trying these because just cutting them out is hard. Now I guess you saying them not being perfectly cut actually works out better, lol, now maybe I will try my hand at them.

Thanks for sharing!
