Did you just glue one side of the petal to the side of the next and work your way around? In the Youtube video, I saw that she was using ribbon, but couldn't figure out what size it was.
I was thinking of doing that but no, I ended up threading each petal corner onto thread & then knotting one end of the thread onto the other.
I used the only ribbon I had on hand, 1 inch wide.
It was so fiddly and at the end after I threaded the petals together I ended up turning the flower upside down & hot glued the middle and all around the back because the petals kept moving around.
There has to be an easier way to put the petals together, this way makes me not want to make another one again
