Default fabric and organza "singed" flowers?

A mom at my daughter's school was wearing the cutest flower hair pin the other day. When I asked her where she got it, she said it was an Etsy purchase.

I only got a quick look at it, as the mom was dropping off her daughter and in a hurry, but it looked like the flower was made out of two different fabrics, a silk and an organza. The fabrics were layered one on top of another, and each slightly smaller, and it looked like the edges had been singed slightly, probably to prevent fraying, but it added a pretty touch to the flower. Has anyone seen these or know how to make them? They circles were all slightly cupped upward, giving them and I'm curious how they got them into that shape. It didn't like they were sewn at all, so I'm clueless on how that shape was achieved.

Any help or advice on how to make these would be much appreciated! My best friend is getting married, and I want to make her one in light cream to match her dress.
Thanks so much!

Sooooooo easy to make. Take any poly fabric--organza works great, satin etc. Cut circles of different sizes and just take a lighter around the edges quickly as though you are heat sealing ribbon.The edges naturally singe and will "cup" upwards in a bowl shape. Sew them together...add some cute beads in the center and glue it on a bobby pin with pads or a clip. Super cute!

There was a link to a blog that gave instructions to make them on here recently. I'll see if I can find it.

I have a tutorial bookmarked somewhere for organza flower clips like this. Let me look for it and I will post it.

Guess what I'm doing tonight. Those are so pretty. I saw one on the front page of Etsy a few days ago and have been thinking about it since.
