Default Organza trim from Julia's buy?

Has anyone had a chance to work with their organza trim from Julia's buy? I just got mine today and tried to make a flower following the tutorial, but I'm not sure I did it right. The bottom sits up really high and I'm not sure how to flatten it and attach felt to the bottom. Here's my pics: bottom view, top view, side view. Any suggestions?

I made one that way as well and it sticks out. So I decided they look awesome as flowerettes and have made TONS of those lol.

Ok, so enlighten me. What is a flowerette and what do I do with it? LOL. I bought a bunch of this trim and need to figure out what to do with it. They sell completed flowers on their etsy site too. I wonder what they look like. I'm pretty sure I did it the way the tutorial said, so I don't know what to do.

They look like this! and I use them on headbands with different centers. Sometimes they can be overlapped and grouped up.

Thank you. That makes sense. I may have to try that if I can't get the others figured out. They turn out so pretty from the top, but boy I don't have a clue what to do with the bottom!

From the side view, it looks like there are two rows of seams... Maybe if you trim off one row, the bottom won't be so thick? But I would think it will make it harder to roll huh? Gluing it to a piece of felt will give it a finished look. It will look great on headbands! Love the flower you made.... Should have joined in on this buy!

It does have two layers of seems and I thought about trimming it. I was afraid that I might make it into a bigger mess though. I may try it though if I can't come up with another solution. The felt wouldn't really cover it because it sticks up so much. You'd have to try and wrap it around the sides and I don't think it would look very good.

So you're going to trim off one of the seams? In their tutorial they didn't look like they stuck up like that, but who knows. I guess I should have bought one of their finished flowers to compare. LOL.

It is very pretty. I wish we would have gotten the brown. I'll have to try trimming it down and see how it turns out. It would be really pretty as trim on clothing too. They said it was washable.
