Default how to make the backs of your assymetrical HBs look nice?

those of you who do rolled roses or other "cluster" headbands.... would you mind posting a pic of the backing of your flowers?

my basic and simple flowers are super easy, b/c i just back them with a felt circle... but when it comes to an assymetrical design i can't figure out how to make them look nice!!! an example of my headband is below.... the back looks awful LOL

anyone want to share pics of theirs? purty please?

Well I don't exactly have a photo to show you as usually I am using simple flowers like you said. However I did make one headband with a bunch of YoYos and what I did was get a piece of paper, draw a rough outline of the whole pattern about 10mm smaller all round, cut it out and held it to the piece. If it looked alright I would transfer the shape to some felt and then glue it all on as one big piece.

I do the same thing except I draw on the felt glue then trim off excess felt to make it look nice.

I usually use felt hearts on the back. Got the idea of using a heart on the back of a singed flower, etc. when attaching it to a headband from Allison (ThreeBlessings). Realized pretty quickly that when doing groups of flowers, etc. a heart is often the perfect shape, and it adds a touch of sweetness, too.

I love the heart idea! I'm going to try it! The backs of my headbands always look so sloppy!

Thats a clever idea. I know that most people use felt, but I agree the heart is an extra special touch.
