Layer the large petals around base bud in the same fashion as the small petals, making sure you rotate stem as you work to evenly distribute petals. Once all petals are in place, cover entire dowel with floral tape.

Shape petals by curling their top edges over a pencil and ruffling with fingers. To add dimension, hold flower by stem at arm's length and lightly dust petal edges with spray paint in a color similar to the crepe paper.
