Having never done this but having looked up briefly how to shape leather, which obviously makes me a master brazen enough to offer a half-concocted idea, this is what I'd suggest doing for a peony or water-lily shaped bloom (much more "wow" than a rose - definitely look up pictures):

-Get a bowl (preferably pyrex or stainless steel) with a nicely rounded bottom.
-Cut a single daisy shape with lots of petals connected to an inner circle out of the leather.
-Soak in water.
-Arrange the daisy shape on the up-turned bowl and press the leather to the shape of the bowl.
-Dry with a blow dryer why continuing to shape the leather.

My apologies in advance if it doesn't work.
