Singed Flowers

I had to try making the singed flowers I've been seeing all over.
These are my first ones and I think they turned out great.

I cut simple flower shapes from organza & tulle ~ a total of 8 or so layers.
Using hemostats to hold the shapes over a candle, I gently turned the peices over and over, letting the heat of the flame curl the edges.

I layered them in a pleasing way and hand sewed them together. I sewed seed beads to the center of the cream flower and attached hot fix crystals to the pink one.

I'm sure I'll be making more.
