Do each one at a time, it will make your flower more secure. If you tape them all together, the heaviness of the petals will cause them to all shift to the bottom as gravity pulls them down when they are on your cake. Start with your center and wrap it twice around with your tape, then add each petal, going around the wire 1 complete time before adding another petal. After you're finished adding petals, continue to wrap the stem all the way down. It does go by feel, you'll get it. Make sure you stretch your floral tape before you start wrapping to activate the glue. I have 2 magnolia's in my pictures if it helps!
