plain to shazaaaam flower

So I saw this flower the other day on I AM MOMMA HEAR ME ROAR. It's actually from TREY AND LUCY.  ::p.s. she tells ya how to make one!:: I fell in love with this flower.  GORG, right? I think it's the combination of stiff broadcloth fabric and delicate folding and wrapping that makes it just so beautiful. I had EVERY intention of making one of them this weekend. BUT--I couldn't seem to peel myself away from this gal.

and  Saturday my hubby went and turned 30
 I finally had some time to create today. Here's mine. I AM IN LOVE.

The possibilities are endless for this beauty. I added it to a hat my roommate in college knitted for me many moons ago. . PLAIN to SHAAZAAAM. :)

I attached a bar pin to the back so that I could move it all around. I placed it on a pillow to see if I wanted to sew one on a plain pillow. I think I should add another layer to make it thicker. Right?

I'll be adding some of these flowers to brooch pins soon and adding them to my shop.  Would you like one? Where would you put it?
