Question Help with Flowers!

I am posting a few photos. Hopefully these will show up well for you to see.

Need some help! These flowers just do NOT sell! I made dozens of full roses, peonies and daisies with expensive centers last year and nobody wanted to pay over a dollar.. which was less than what I paid for the supplies!

Are these centers okay or do you think I should switch to just a rhinestone or grouping of rhinestones? Another kind of center?

What should the price for a single flower be?

Which is your favorite center style from these below?

One more thing.. Do these look okay? Just wondering if there's a reason nobody's buying!!

I think they are very pretty. Some people just want you to give them the items for nothing.

i thought they look fine, but if i have to choose it would be the 3rd and the 4th center piece.
If i have to choose between rhinestone or from the pix, it would be just simple rhinestone, looks more simple and easy (that's what i like).
Sorry, i can't help with the price.

I think your centers look really pretty and classy. I see many of these selling on headbands and hats. Maybe people can't picture what to do with such a big flower so perhaps if you show them how pretty they would look on a foe headband or a kufi? Just my thoughts!

I think they're gorgeous and $1 is ridiculous. Those would easily be $10-15 in a store, so there is no reason why you should be the 99 cent store.

My daughter likes the center in 3. I certainly like the one in 4 for xmas and it's nice that it stands out. Just trying to get them organized and order my centers now.
Now that I look at them I see what you're saying. I'm glad you made up my mind about the rondell. They should be a simple style or smaller.. I think.

The prices confuse me. There are thousands of flowers for sale out there

I love the pics 2 and 3. Is it the color of the flower that nobody wants? I have few colors of AR flowers that nobody buys. And I have like 4 of each.
I also think that $6 for just plain flower sounds good ( I am not sure how big the flower is, so Im just guessing). More with the headband. Maybe you need to take some great pictures?

I think they are nice flowers my only concern in the centers might look a little "old lady like" for lack of a better way to say it i think for little girls moms like rhinestones and pearls maybe try those and see if it goes better i sell one quite similar and it does well i sell them for $5 good luck

Yep. I didn't have them modeled. Maybe I will do both a kufi and a band and get her to model for reference.
