Here is how you create them:
- Start out with 4 or 5 different size circles of organza, the largest circle should be about about 4" in diameter. (I free hand cut the circles with scissors)
- Curve the edges of the organza circles: Use a tweezers to hold hold one of the organza circles 2 to 3" above the flame of a lighter or candle until the fabric starts to crinkle or curve. Quickly move to another area till the whole circle is complete. Do as little or as much crinkling as you like. This step is optional.
- Cut 4 to 6 circles from silk or cotton fabric varying sizes. The largest being about 3 1/4" in diameter and the smallest being about 1" in diameter. (I free hand cut circles with scissors) (For Autumn's flower I used smaller circles.)
- Stack the circles: Begin with the largest organza circle, then top it with your largest silk or cotton circle. Continue to stack from largest to smallest (it's fine if some are of similar size). The circles don't need to be perfectly centered. Pin a straight pin through the center to hold the stack in place.
- Sew the stack together: You can use a button in the center, beads or really whatever you desire.
- Add a clip: I added my ribbon covered clip to the back of my flower with a hot glue gun.

The possibilities are endless with these flowers, you could add them to a headband, make them into a necklace or a craft project like I did here.
