OK Now this is the trickiest part of the flower so you might want to look at the pictures a couple of times to understand.

Lift the bottom flap (the point of the diamond shape) up.

Fatten it making sure that the bottom flap stays over the top flap. Like I said You might want to take an extra look at the pictures.

dude ur missing a step
Got it. After you unfold the tiny flaps from step 8, take the very bottom tip of that central piece and fold it all the way up to the top tip. While you do this, the paper should form a sort of awkward cup shape, flatten the sides of that "cup" down so they meet in the middle.

Unfold step 8
Tip to tip
Flatten the sides so they meet in the middle (Will look like picture 4)
