Once you have cut out your shapes (I had a large sized flower shape, medium sized flower shape and a tiny circle to make 1 flower... you dont have to do it this way but I had 3 pieces for each flower I made and glued onto the skirt). To burn the edge, you can just light a candle and put the fabric close to it and make sure it doesnt catch on fire. There is a little trial-and-error with this but it is quite simple once you do it. The fabric wrinkles up immediately and makes a nice, organic shape. The best part? It won't fray! If my instructions don't do it for you, here is a different set where I learned to burn fabrics. http://www.reesedixon.com/2009/03/organza-flowers.html
