I got the base and the center but my petals suck. I need to revisit the instruction again--- very very slowly.

I bought the instructions also. I really do SUCK at it! I am woundering if there are idot proof instructions. I have watched the video and still can't grasp it.

Hang in there girls. I don't have the instructions so I don't know how hard they are but don't give up! You can do it! Cheering you all on!

Uh Oh...I just bought the instructions from Lynn before reading this. I hope it's not as hard as it sounds. Does the video come with the instructions?

I just sat down with the instructions today and after hours (yes, hours) of practice, I finally got it. I used a combination of the instructions and the video. Hang it there ladies, if I can get it, I know y'all get it too. It just takes patience and a whole lot of practice.

I am so sorry girls that you're having problems making the rose. I am willing to help until you get it. The paid-subscriptions forum for my instruction on HG is set up and will be active soon, then I will give all of you who has bought my instructions the password to access the discussion forum. In the mean time, I will assist all of you who need help by email or simply PM me. I will answer every single question you have. But please adress your problem to me, not just say I am having problem in general :-) Believe me, some people were having hard time and emailed me and finally got it! BTW if you are reading this, please shout out loud! LOL :-)
My advice is try to start with 7/8" ribbon first as I said in the ebook, it's the easiest size to start with.

It's not as hard as you may think at all. As it's step by step instructions and as I numbered every step, please let me know how far you got and at which step you started to have problem. Let me see a pic. I will tell you how to fix it and how to go further.

Butterflyladybug01, I believe it was you who convoed me yesterday on Etsy "I need some additional help with your instructions. Can you make a video in slow motion, step by step?". I am so sorry but I can't do it as extra support for the ebook. I promised I'll help with email support and that's what I will do.

Thank you so much.
Lynn

I'm sorry Lynn. I didn't mean anything when I typed this thread. Your instructions are great, I think that it is just me. I am going to try again later this afternoon when Emily is down for a nap and the other 2 are playing quietly in their rooms. Hopefully when the house is completely quiet and I can concentrate fully then maybe I can get it.

I wanted to add that when I first tried it I started off with 1 1/2" satin ribbon because that's what I needed. Well that was a big mistake! The ribbon was too wide and slippery for my first try so I went down to the 7/8" grosgrain and got it almost instantly. I then went back to the 1 1/2" satin and it was sooo much easier! I will post pictures of my befor and after, after my playgroup this afternoon.
