Is the picture and inspirations picture or your work? They look perfect.

If these are not yours maybe your circles are too circular. Try tapering them very slightly at the bottom. I could be way off base, but cherry blossoms aren’t exact circles. Try doing a google search for “cherry blossom picture”, and you will see the shape.

try making them more oval instead of round maybe?

i agree, the petals in the inspiration picture are more like an oval, but a bit tapered on one end. i think that would help a lot.

yes cherry blossom petals are a bit wider at their edges and are all slightly* different in shape. What i mean is that each petal isnt exactly the same as another. However, if the picture above is the ones youve done so far, i think they are lovely! Im not sure that they have to be changed to look more like cherry blossoms because you get the overall idea just as they are.

I wonder if you could use an embosser to get the same effect? Just an idea – I’m not sure it would get hot enough to melt the fabric, but I was using mine last night and the paper I was using started smoking! Maybe you need an actual flame to get the effect you’re looking for, but it might be worth the try with the embosser – it would give you more control than a flame (maybe?)

I know it’s super tedious and you may burn your thumb, but try using a iighter…I had to do it for some of my flowers and it works really well since you have control of the flame.  Another tip…make sure there are no drafts   🙂

@kfricke89  they do seem rather easy to make and I could possibly help you out (I have a lot of experience on making fabric flowers) let me know 🙂
