Step 1: Supplies

Here's what you'll need:
:: scrapbook paper
:: scissors
:: hot glue gun
:: floral wire

Step 2: Cut Circle

Cut a circle from paper. Starting at the outside edge, cut a spiral towards the center. Slightly scalloping the edges will create a more natural and imperfect looking blossom.

Step 3: Tightly Coil

Beginning from the outside, tightly coil the paper, rolling towards the center.

Step 4: Release Coil

Allow the paper coil to loosen to create a flower.

Step 5: Glue to Secure

Add a bit of hot glue to the end of the coil to secure.

Step 6: Create a Leaf

Cut a leaf shape out of scrapbook paper

Step 7: Fold Leaf

Create an accordion-style fold in the center of the leaf and secure with hot glue.

Step 8: Add Wire

Bend the end of a piece of floral wire and hot glue to the bottom of the flower and glue the bottom of the leaf to cover.

Step 9: Enjoy!

i'm guessing cutting it from a spiral is why it works better that using strips

All of mine are turning out tiny and I have to glue all throughout. How do I make them look more bloomed like those shown?

Allow them to 'uncoil' a bit before gluing to the back piece. Or you could try cutting your circle larger and vary the coil width when cutting. Sorry for the trouble!
