First of all you need to cut out nine circles of paper or thin card. I used an old magazine and chose a full page advertisement which was in reds and whites.
Cut out your circles with a punch, or a circle cutter- or draw round a small lid or cup and cut with scissors.
Fold back two equal segments at the bottom of each circle. These should be at right angles, using the chords which join the points where the folds meet the edge.
Do this with all eight circles then turn them over again.
Now fold those two wings back so the folds you just made lie along the centre crease.
Repeat this till all eight petals have been folded.
Now on your ninth circle, put a piece of double sided sticky tape and peel off the backing
Stick on a button or sequin to finish off your flower…
[You can see this one is not quite perfect – there is a tiny gap between two pairs of petals] Use them to decorate cards or presents
