Now, add green leaves to the largest circle and turn the smaller ones into flowers.

When drawing the leaves, make sure that:

-they're a bit shorter than the circles diameter
otherwise, you won't be able to fold them properly afterwards.

Be creative, and write your wish in the centre of the smallest flower.

Assemble your flower by glueing each piece onto the next in the centre.

That's it!
Now, fold the flower up and put a small piece of duct tape on top, to keep it shut. The person you give this to will have a nice surprise when unfolding it!

I made one of these for my friends and she loved it! Oh, and I also stuck a quarter inside- just for a little something extra.
