ok, here's my try, isnt perfect. I did it with my 2 year old son hanging of me lol. Please excuse the wonky petal & the glue and lighting.
its only one layer & I dont think I will ever make one with more layers like that flower. But it gives you an idea what the petals look like & I did it following the instructions on that youtube video.
I just need to find an easier way to connect the petals together, that part was so frustrating.

Natalie, I think that's really pretty!

Did you just glue one side of the petal to the side of the next and work your way around? In the Youtube video, I saw that she was using ribbon, but couldn't figure out what size it was.

I was thinking of doing that but no, I ended up threading each petal corner onto thread & then knotting one end of the thread onto the other.
I used the only ribbon I had on hand, 1 inch wide.
It was so fiddly and at the end after I threaded the petals together I ended up turning the flower upside down & hot glued the middle and all around the back because the petals kept moving around.
There has to be an easier way to put the petals together, this way makes me not want to make another one again

It is gorgeous, but For $47 and $55 it better come with someone who does my hair and sticks it in there. Crazy!

That is beautiful but not sure I could shell out $50 bucks for one of those.

Yeah, the price tag is scary. I found the tutorials and such on how to make the petals, but I get stumped on how to make it into a flower. Especially the three tiers.

Unless there is a quicker way to make each petal, I can understand her prices. It's a pain in the butt to make each one.
