I've placed my bands 1-8 now. After your first 4, you place bands 5b, 6a, 7b, 8a. (Placements are shown in step 2)

I've placed all of my 12 bands now. After the first 8, the order is 9c, 10c, 11c, 12b. For placement refer to step 2.

I did the same steps all the way up my loom.. Now go back to your first petal. ( the first batch on bands you placed)

I'm using a metal "c" clip, you can use plastic either works. Make sure you get ALL the rubber bands that are on the first peg in the clip. Or else... It'll just fall apart . ):

One handed, clearly I'm having a bit of trouble, but no bothers given here! Just take the band off the loom! (Do it more gracefully then I!)

17

You should have a nice looking petal on your hook!

18

Do that until the forth petal. When you get to the last petal on your loom. Finish the petal like normal. You will only have 4 petals..
