Can you post a picture of what yours look like? I also cut carefully inside each of the petals to get off as much of the netting as possible first. Then I use a lighter to singe off the excess netting to give it a clean look. I do this very quickly so as not to catch the fabric part which will burn rather than melt like the netting.
ETA: When I am done singeing all the edges, I place the flower on whatever I am making it into (hard headband, FOE or skinny elastic) and add a felt circle afterwards to finish it off.
