Step 1: Cut Your Squares
I used 3" x 3" squares of paper cut from old magazines. I like using magazine paper as it gives a little "texture" to the flowers. You will need five squares per flower head you wish to make
Step 2: Start Folding!
Make your first fold! Fold your square up so two corners are touching
Next, fold the two corner points up to the top middle point
Then, fold your two top points out to the side
This step is the hardest to describe, you need to open up the two side flaps and fold them flat so it looks like you have three equally shaped parts. ** this step is actually very easy once you get it! Keep at it until you have it down :) **
Fold down the two tops of the side flaps
Step 7: Last Folding Step
You are almost there! Fold your two side parts in half in towards the middle
Step 8: Create One Petal
Hooray! You have finished folding!
Bring the two sides together to make a petal and secure with a little piece of tape
Step 9: Create Your Flower
Once you have five petals, secure them all together using double sided tape (or glue) to create your flower!
Step 10: Make a Beautiful Bouquet
Secure lots of flowers together to create a beautiful bouquet. It looks great and it never needs watering!
