I tried it too. My first one I did not glue the bottom edge shut before I rolled,and the 2 layers shifted on me and gave my petals a "twisted" look. The second one I did glue. I ran a small strip of hot glue down the long edge and glued together, then I cut my slits and rolled. It turned out much more uniform!
