And some how be able to attatch it to the ribbon around the mommy's belly, maybe put velcro on the back or something?... I would really love to make these and see how they sell,

I hot glue the flowers to the ribbon. It holds great. Then I cut a piece of felt in the shape of the design so that you can't see it from the front. Then I glue or sew to the entire back of the ribbon (this would be against moms tummy) to hold it all together well. There are a lot of awesome flower tuts out there to use and the ribbon length depends on size of moms waist. I usually customize mine to size and leave enough for a nice size bow, just in case they want to flip it around and use just the bow for a prop. Also, these are great as newborn baby props (just lay it across naked newborn) or an up scale headband with long satin tails
