i don't know if this will work . . . but you won't ruin it trying . . . do a gathering stitch from the middle of the flower out to the edge on the back of the flower - and repeating this 3 more times (of course, evenly spaced - kinda like an X)
or just safety pin gather . . . and see what it looks like. but it'll make the flower smaller, if that's okay.
