Those are cute. Ive found that to be able to get a flat rose you need not to made the fold so close to the center. I put some hot glue near the edge of the previous layer that way i get the widening effect instead of the getting tall effect. Does that make sense??

She is exactly right! Each successive layer should be placed farther away from the center. Look underneath and place the loose edge of ribbon about halfway on the previous layer. Then, cover the whole thing with a wide circle of felt when you"re done.

Mine started out looking stacked early on; Now, some of mine are flat as a pancake.

I haven't tried these yet but I love how they look. Practice is definitely key with everything. I love them all but the third one looks amazing.
