you're too funny . . . and brave to pic your oops!
i also had tons of oops on . . .
How to make a Silk Ribbon Rosette
and it also hurt my fingers to hold the base . . . but i've had v/good luck when i put the tail between 2 fingers (now you don't have to hold it!) and then shape/make the flower using my left hand as the base.
lol - here's where a pic would have been worth a thousand words!
