Your flowers are beautiful! You also did an excellent tutorial. Thank You!
Where do you get the nylon in all the pretty colors?

This would be a cute idea for pins, bracelets, pendants, hair jewelry, etc. Lots of possibilities with these beauties for sure :-)

Where do you get the nylon in all the pretty colors?

I got the nylon from the craft store I work at. It's by a company called Memento Enterprise and part of their You Can Do collection. The wire is from the same collection. I'm not sure where it would be available outside of Hawaii. But you can get the same effect by dying white pantyhose with fabric dye.

Hey, I learned how to make these from Crafts Club at school! Cheesy But I've never made it with a beaded centre before (such a great idea!), and I used to place the petals one-by-one, and sewing/tying them layer by layer. ^^; Who knew I could tie them all at once?

Anyway, a few variations (that the girl from the club taught us) would be to make heart-shaped petals. Right after shaping and twisting the wire into a circle, just hold the edge of the circle, opposite the long stem, between your thumb and index+middle finger and press. Basically you're making a dent in the circle, getting this shape: ---<3

We did this with all the petals, so in the end you get a different species of flower from the round-petal ones. Smiley We also used three different diameters to make the circular wires, so the smaller petals would go in the centre, medium next, and biggest petals on the outside.

Anddd... we also made nylon leaves. Grin Just curved V-shapes with green nylon.

There are lots more possibilities, I've heard people bleaching the edges of the nylon once the petals are formed, to get a gradient effect, but I've never tried that.

P.S. Sorry for intruding, jeni_loves_you! ^^
