Step 1: Everything you need...

To begin all you really need is some paper, glue, and scissors. The floral tape and stem wire are optional. You can make your own stems out of things around the house or by rolling paper. The floral tape will help in adding completed flowers together to make bunches.

Step 2: Cut out a petal and crumple.

Cut out a petal and crumple. Simple eh? The crumpling makes the paper more pliable. Then just shape the petal into the form of the center bloom.

Step 4: Continue adding petals.

Add petals to create a flower that is as big and open or as small and budded as desired. You can be as creative as you want. Experiment and have fun with it!

Step 6: Insert stem.

Add a dab of glue to stem wire or what ever you want to use as the base and insert into the center bottom of bloom. And there you go! A beautiful flower!

Step 7: Creative things for finishing touches.
