Wow! These are awesome! I think I'll make a few for my sisters for Christmas. I'm trying to put together a few quick gifts for each of them, but that still look fancy, and these are perfect! Does ANY kind of poly work? What section would I look in at the fabric store....the bridal/dress fabrics?

Thanks!  As for ANY kind, I'm no expert, so I'm sorry I can't answer that.   But yes, the kind in the bridal/formal fabrics would be the way to go, as that's what I use.  I use dress linings from reclaimed thrift store dresses, and they're listed on the tags as 100% polyester, and they're silky.  Please be sure to share your pics with us! Smiley

On another note, My sister made some of these recently, and she used the old-fashioned type of polyester -- not silky, but stretchy and almost jersey-like -- and they still melted and curled a bit, but not as much as the silky kind.  They're very interesting.

Now, just be careful, like the tute warns.  We recently had one lovely rust-colored lining fabric that immediately burst into flames, no matter how careful we were, or how far we kept it from the flame!   Shocked  We couldn't use it at all.

I finally got around to getting some fabric to make these. I made 2 sets for each of my sisters for Christmas, and placed them on some cardstock. I notched the cardstock so the flowers would be almost flush with the cardstock and not hanging over the sides. I'm still trying to find a way to wrap them so that the flowers dont get crushed....any suggestions???

GORGEOUS!  I really love the larger, fuller ones!  Your sisters will love these! 

As for wrapping, you could make some pillow boxes.  There are lots of tutorials out there for them, and they're quick & easy!  To wrap mine for my swap partner, I wrapped them in a homemade match box, just patterned off a regular old matchbox.  Lots of tutes/templates out there for these, too.

So I saw your flowers and tutorial and had to try them myself.  I'm afraid mine aren't as pretty, but they were fun to make and I'll definitely wear them!  I'm giving them away to my girlfriends for Christmas.  I wish I had gone with beads instead of buttons, but I think they turned out OK.  










Thank you for the tutorial!

I tried a tutorial about making flowers like yours a couple months back, but I was never able to get the petals to curl without melting the fabrics. I think I'll give it another go though, yours turned out really pretty Smiley
