Thanks ladies for sharing your instructions with us. I actually made this flower two weeks ago and was trying to post the pictures on how I did it, but couldn't get the pictures to come up. I used a 1/4" sheer burgundy ribbon for the four bottom petals and a sheer light pink for the top four petals and topped it of with 1/4" metallic silver ribbon made into three balls using Michelles knot instructions. It turned out super cute. The flower was about 2 1/4 inches across. If anyone would like to see it I will see if my hubby can figure out what I am doing wrong, and post it for me.
