I made the burlap flower myself using the same technique in my ribbon rose tutorial.
- I cut a strip of burlap about 8"-12" long and 1" wide. I then folded it in half length wise so that I am working with the folded edge at the top and the frayed ends at the bottom.
- I then tightly rolled the edge about 4 turns to make the center of my rose.
- From this point I didn't leave the strip folded in half, and folded the strip down and away from the center. I just rolled it as I went. (see video above for better explanation)
- It's not a bad idea to add a dab of hot glue here and there.
- When it was to the desired size, I cut the end and tucked it underneath then hotglued the flower down onto a circle of paper I had pre-punched.
