Default Where can I find this tut?

Hi! A lady just asked me to make several of these for her daughter's birthday party as favors (yay!) I know I've seen a tut for this somewhere but I can't find it. It doesn't look very complicated, I just want to make sure that the way I picture it in my head is really the way it's supposed to be made. TIA for your help ladies!

I make mine with 6 petals I cut the pieces 3", 2.5", and 2". Then using upholstery thread I sew the pieces together lining up all the ends. I start by gluing the first 2 petals together just at the very end side by side. Then I glue the next and so on. Once you have them all glued side by side pull the first and last toward each other and glue them together. This should make a nice shape flower. Then you can embellish and add clip. I sell mine for $3-$4 depending on embellishment. HTH

Thanks so much! I tried at least 8 times to get it right! lol Finally I ended up on a shape that i liked. Hopefully once i get a few down i'll find a trick to it. I'll post a pic once I get them done.

edit: This is what I ended up with after the 8th time....

So the ribbon colors that I'm using came in yesterday, I cut all my petals and am finally sitting down to make them and.... Fail! I can't get it! I've tried gluing them together, but some of the petals end up looking stretched out... I can't get the shape right again. I have to get them done by the 17th.

What am I doing wrong?

i've never glued or sewed the individual petal together . . . i just stick them thru a threaded needle (haha - i heat seal them while a bunch of them are on the needle) and then pull and knot . . .

i've never had a problem . . . hth!

oh - sometimes i put a cuticle stick (only thing i've got handy) in the middle and pull around that to see if i've got enough/how it looks before i tie it off.

Same here....I cut my lengths enough for 8 petals, heat seal and string them all on a threaded needle and knot the two ends together. I do put a dab of glue between the first and last. If the different lengths of ribbon are not cut all exactly the same it will make the flower look off.
