  1. These flowers are my favorite!!! I have purchased several large orders of these to make hair accessories with them. Some are available for purchase in my shop at http://www.jeckaboutique.etsy.com and featured on my blog at http://jeckaboutique.com/blog/.
    DuhBe has been such an inspiration! I am anxiously awaiting a huge order in many of the new colors…My mind is spinning with new ideas, especially for brides. Stay tuned…

  2. I love these – thanks for the turorial. On a more personal note, it is always great to find other crafty science geeks. I’ll be back.

  3. Love your easy tutorial. I have fooled around making roses since a child, but making dolls is my hobb now. I sometimes require smaller things and although I use the candle to burn fabric hems, I think trying a wood burning tool is safer and perhaps will accomplish the same thing but one can be more precise. I do like the black sometimes, but sometimes not. You can also put holes in synthetics with the tool which look like lacy things. Some grape leaves look just like that outside as the Japanese beetles have been dining with vigorll making them look like lace.. What fun that might be to print those lacy leaves on fabric…Off the subject, but still in the flora etc….Thanks for sharing. Your ideas are like yeast…they grow! pharpha

  4. try a wood burning tool instead of the candle for preciseness and safety issues.
    Also, a wire zigzagged works well and fast for the gathering and is easily twisted to finish before you stitch by hand. This is more sturdy for some uses.

  5. Thanks for all the encouragement. I’m so glad people have found their way over here from the CRAFTzine blog.

    As far as using a woodburning tool, I have actually used a soldering iron for that purpose but it only seals the edges and you don’t get the same curling and darkening of the petals. But people should experiment with their own tools and creative flow to see what works best! I had some options like that at the end of the tutorial, but decided to leave that as a follow up post later on. 🙂

    Kisses and even more …

  22. KLauren

    I’m so glad I found this tutorial! I’m a costumer and want to use this technique to make some rose petal skirts for fairie folk in a show I’m doing. Thank you for being so generous with your instruction. Knowledge is a good thing and can be so useful. I’ve been trying a woodburning tool, doesn’t seem to get the same curl to the edge as the candle. That makes all the difference.
    Thanks again so much for this tutorial. Blessings!

    • Tiffany – that’s great news! I’ll be sure to listen, and I plan to hear some of your older podcasts while I work in my studio today. Thanks!

  23. Angie

    Thank you so much for sharing. I agree with your philosophy. I used to have a craft company where I recycled maps into jewelry and ‘stuff’. I’ve been sharing this process with many people, no charge. I love recycling and crafts!
    I will make the rose tomorrow. Looking forward to your technique. I’ve tried others but these roses look the most authentic.

  24. This is yet another stunning way to create one of nature’s most beautiful flowers and you do it so much justice.. absolutely beautiful!

  25. Kandi

    Thank you so much for your generosity .
    I have my own furniture and furnishing store .
    I do not have a lot of time to experiment when I come up with an idea for something . You have saved me loads of time . I plan to incorporate these into my wedding also . I will be back to your place !!!!
    Amazingly easy to follow.

  26. I can’t thank you enough for this tutorial.
    You use many of my techniques I use everyday.
    I’m an alternative fashion designer who does both garments and accessories and I will sure experiment with this technique to make roses for the garments, hats and hairclips.

    Thank you for sharing.
    Lots of karma to you!
