this is really a fun project--cut circles, small, medium, large. Melt the edges with a candle. A soy wax candle doesn't leave dark ashes. Be careful not to burn your fingers--I use a tweezers for the small circles. You can cut "petal" shapes in the circle. Experiment with the different fabrics--they burn differently. Layer 3-5 on top of each other, add, beads and ribbons and you have a flower decoration.
