Default Chiffon Flower TUT HELP!

Everyone loves chiffon and tulle.
SO I get a bunch of requests for the tulle puff flowers made a different way. This week I had requests for
tulle (like the mesh) only in two colors
tulle (like the mesh ones also) only in solid color
so NO satin in these.
Then I had requests for colors we don't have yet. Nothing any hg members have picked up on so far.

Then there's the chiffon.
Can you make them smaller?
Yes. I purchased some
Can you make them larger?
NO
So is there a way to make a larger chiffon flower with what we have or someone who distributes the same shabby flowers in larger size in ALL colors?
If so I want them all!

AND
Does anyone actually sell a tutorial for the satin and mesh? I wouldn't know what it would be called or where to find it!! I worry that I'd pick up the wrong one!

hellp helllp! these could be big sellers here in my neck of the woods!

Um Geri you know I seem to be leaving things out of my messages lately!

Okay, the first one I want to learn to make myself with just tulle or printed satin.. or whatever works.

The second one shows the chiffon flower. I want to see if I can find a way to make this bigger.
I'm thinking on the chiffon I should just get tulle and bunch it and sew in ruffles to put at the base so they come up from the sides for a wider one but not sure how it will look. Plus it's hard to sew.
Surely a match to the chiffon in fabric will be tough

I've actually found a china supplier who will make the chiffon flowers to whatever size I want, and was getting ready to order some samples, just trying to decide what size. How big are you looking for?

See I wasn't sure tho if they were the same but now I see that the first tut would probably be perfect!
