Thank you!! Honestly, I just look around the house and find things that are about the shape I want and trace them. I have used toys, glasses, ribbon spools. I just keep going down a little with each size.

I go around the edge lightly first and then singe all underneath the flower, instead of just the edges. I also singe the satin side in just a couple of places. This will pull your satin a different way and adds more texture. Your right, the trick is moving slowly and having a lot of patience, but I love that no 2 ever look the same.

Oh I love that you put the leaf in there! I haven't done that with mine...very cool!

Just saw your other post on how you singe yours...that's how I do mine too...makes the curling look more realistic I think...Nice job!
