Sizzix flower die with at least two sizes of flowers ( I use the Large Daisies die..or the Hello Kitty flower die)
Sizzix, cuttlebug or equal cutting machine
3 different colors of synthetic fabric ..think sheers in different textures
brads or needle and thread to secure layers
pearls or beads for flower centers
After you have assembled all your supplies you will need to cut 2 layers each of the 3 fabrics in both sizes to equal 12 layers total.
Now its time to heat distress the petals! Yay! Using your heat gun turn the flower upside down and start curling the petals towards the front of the flower by passing your heat gun over it a few times in close range to the petals. The heat will shrink and curl the petals..this is a good thing! Do the bottom layer first then start working your way to the top layer. While you are doing this you should start pulling the layers apart during the heating process. If you have a pair of tweezers or pliers it would be wise to use them because your fingers can get really hot!
Your flower then should look something like this:
These look great spritzed with a little glimmer mist..or with glitter added to the edges of the petals.
