It was time for a girl baby shower and I wanted to make a felt flower headband. I followed this tutorial, using 4 pieces of felt like she said. When I was done with that I didn't like how it looked and when I tried adding in one more, like she said she did sometimes, it still just wasn't enough for me. So here is what I did to make it more to my taste.

Here is a still picture of how it looks when you pinch this piece:
Glue the pieces to each other and then to the larger petals. Here's a tip: when you are putting the two small pieces together, don't match up the tips, leave a little space like I showed here:
