I've only done 5 or 6. 8 seems like a lot to me but if you like the way it looks then go for it!

I have 7 petals in mine. Also, I do not stitch them around the edge. I fold the circle in half and in half again. Then I fold it in half again to make a small triangle. After that I fold each side to the edge(the middle of that fold). If you look at the cut edge you should see an M. Then I clip with a double prong clip near the cut edge. I thread through the center of the clip. So the needle goes through near the cut edge. After 7 pedals have been threaded, I pull it tight and tie with the starting thread. I hope this makes sense. I do not know how to do a tutorial. Sorry.
