 I have made several instructables showing how to make paper flowers, roses, daisies, and so on.  The thought came to me one day to use fabric as there are so many colorful, brilliant, decorative and vibrant fabrics to choose from. The issue was the fabrics were not "stiff" enough, so the next thought was to starch the cloth before trying to manipulate them into various flower forms.  It worked!

Few tools and supplies are necessary: starch, fabric, scissors, glue, materials for stems and so on.
 
So much for buying fake flowers ever again! The tequila rose is definitely my favorite.
