i found i did it using one colour at a time forming the whole of a segment and twisting into center then on next segment do first bubble twist into pinch of completed segment and so on the only bit that is a prob is the twisting the last segment into the first pinch twist but a little bit of threading through is no hardship.  If you get what i mean! This way is less difficult to explain as you complete a segment fully, ie first segment of flower is two finger bubble, two finger bubble, pinch twist and then two finger bubble return to centre and twist into center. Second two finger bubble twist into first pinch twist, two finger bubble, pinch twist, two finger bubble and lock into center green bubble. And so forth until finished..hope this is of some use. I think that alternatives that get the same result are helpful.

OK just tried it and it worked & it was a lot easier that way as well.
The only difference is that all the pinch twists end up being the same colour, but that's not a problem.

sorry graham i think you just found another way to do it! I tie the two balloons ie two colours for the flower to the stem or just together and pop stem in later. Then follow the instructions with segment one being first colour and second segment in the alternating colour. And so forth, then the pinch twists are different colours, i posted a pic of my final flower on previous page. Hope its a bit clearer this time!
