I’m doing some step by step photos for you and rather than using the patterned paper have used a plain piece of cardstock as I think that makes it easier to see the steps:
1 – fold your piece of paper in half – I’m using a bone folder so that the folds get a firm crease.
2 – fold one diagonal into the centre and repeat with the other side.
6 – stick the outside flaps and then bring the edges together, and all being well, you end up with the same thing as in the second picture, one ‘petal’.
I have used five petals to make a flower, you can make them tighter and use six (and if you like folding!). As the glue ‘sets’ I use some paperclips to hold the folds and petals together. A glue gun comes in handy for this.
And here you have it, the final result of 5 petals all glued together. You can turn them into a flower bauble and to do this you will need around 12 flowers and some ribbon.
