Paper Flowers

I was inspired by a frame I have of a sunflower to make these paper flowers. I looked at the ceramic sunflower and thought that I could make a paper version of it. So I made up a template of the flower and proceeded. It doesn't have to be a sunflower, it can be any other flower in different colours.

1.Punch a 2.5 cm circle.
2.Cut out 7 petals to fit around the circle.
3.Pleat the petals at the bottom to give a 3D image
4.Glue the petals on the back of the circle.
5.Ink the petals where the pleat is.
If you want to you can ink the petals all around before you pleat them.
I have used Chatterbox Patterned Paper because it is double sided and has a slight texture and is thin enough to work with.
