Step 1: What You Need:

2 square pieces of yellow paper, 1 square piece of green paper, craft glue, and scissors.

Step 2:

Fold one yellow paper twice, and cut out 4 square pieces.

Step 3:

Fold one of the small squares into a triangle 3 times. Outline your pedal if you want a guide. Cut the bottom piece for the center hole.

Step 4:

Repeat step 3, 3 or more times depending on how many pedals you want in the flower.

Step 5:

the first cut out just needs one slit cut down to the center whole. Cut one pedal out of the second one, 2 pedals out of the third, and so on.

Glue the cut outs back together. Each one should have less pedals and appear smaller.

Step 6:

Glue them all together from large to small, with the smallest being in the center.

Let the flower dry while you roll and glue a piece of the green paper into a stem.

Connect the flower to the stem with glue.

Step 7:

Create a bouquet using different colors and by cutting out different shaped pedals.
