How to make...

Satin Flowers!

What you need..
A pair of sharp scissors.
  A cigarette lighter
A hot glue gun
 Scrap satin material

Ok now that you have everything you need lets start making a Satin Flower.

Step One: Cut out rough circles from largest to smallest.

Step Two: Burn around the edges of each circle letting the top side of the material flop down ways so it curls up to make the flower like shape.
Repeat until all circles are done

Note; Burning the edges stops fraying and turns the edges.

You should now have circles looking like this

Step Three: Using your hot glue gun, glue each circle together (be careful not to burn your self) 
from Largest to smallest.
Now you will have a flower.

To add something a little extra to finish off your Satin Flower you can add beads, diamantes or anything that takes your fancy.

Note; To make into a hair clip/band or brooch I use sticky backed felt as a stabilizer
