How do you make it opened like this? My flower always finished really tall and narrow, I4d like to have large opened flowers like your :)

I build loosely, i also put mu finger on the rose and wrap the petals over it to get them to start to open up. It takes practice, ive been doing this for at least a year now. I would say try to make them sloppy, not all tight. Imprefection is perfection here :P
thats the same problem that i was having...  thanks for that comment tho :)

I did everything like you said too but it doesn't look as good as that.

I just can't get it to "flower" like that! mine is all tight and straight not flowing out.. :( please help!
I really liked this, good work putting it together. What I like to do is to use a straw for the stem, and then wrap it with green duct tape (with a little green leaf!). :)

when you start on the petals, do you start at the same level as the otner petals?
like this:

-> starting level ------- all petals

or is it like this ? all petals
->starting level --------
Herrozerro (author)  ianbar206 years ago
The way i would explain it is that the petals build on each other. the level depends on the size of the petals, generally i try to keep the tips around the same level or slightly lower to get that open rose look
man, thanks for the detailed instructions. i made one before and it was tall, but on only my 2nd time i nailed it. this is so cool. i tried the website you got it from and it wasn't half as good as your instructions. thanks again, man.
