Fabric Flowers for Ava

I decided I would use my nieces upcoming 4th birthday as an opportunity to try this tutorial on fabric flowers. My intention is to make headbands and/or hair clips out of them. 
It was a little harder than I anticipated to add 'dimension' by creasing the instead I got out my curling iron. Yup, that's right! I used it to curl the peddles up and down on different layers. It gives it a sightly different look than the original flowers, but still cute.
More flowers...
...and this one...
last but not least...
I ended up making 5 of which is a little sad looking (note to self- thin petals don't work so well), here is how that one turned out...
Plenty for both my nieces! Still need to get hair clips and/or head bands to attach them, but I'm thinking if nothing else works, a hot glue gun will!
