I don't blame her. Pads are a pain. As Kaitlin suggests, you can buy her the slender ones, and just show her how to use them (you can use an almost-closed fist to represent the vaginal opening).
What are your concerns about her using tampons? You seem quite panicked.

Nope, she's not too young. Just be honest with her and say, "I'm a bit nervous, because when my mom tried to explain it to me, she botched it up, and I don't want to do that with you." She'll likely appreciate your candor.
Not sure if you can still get them, but when I was learning to use tampons I started with "applicator tampons". The tampon itself is housed in a very thin tube that is inserted into the vagina and then you push the bottom half of the tube to meet the top half of the tube and voila, the tampon is in place. Perfect for a young girl to start with.
