Try to keep your loops even on each level and they should stand up straight. Also remove all glue strings.

I put the head of the clip inside the loop of a petal. It hides better and is easier to open and close.

Love the color scheme you used!

yup, the colors are great . . . but i think the tut indicates cutting them in 1/2" intervals . . . and this might make it sturdier looking, as well as adding more petals. i'd guess that the larger the flower - the more petals.

i'm soooo glad to see stuff other than tbb!

I make the larger ones and the smaller ones. I like the little ones the best.

All of the flowers look great
What do you all use for the back part to make it more secure for the clip?

I dont put anything on the back. I have sold literally hundreds and have never had a problem.

Very cute--reminds me of the scrap ribbon butterfly. A great way to use up all those little pieces. It seems now I can't even throw away little scraps of ribbon...

Would you mind sharing the lengths you use for your ribbons? I love how cute yours are. My daughter's hair is short, so the littler ones would probably be perfect for her!

I think these look better then they are minis. If you make them bigger they sit funny on the head.
