1. Begin with a 12 inch (30cm) strip of paper. (The finished flower will be twice as wide as your paper strip when finished, so cut the strip accordingly)
2. Place patterned paper on the paper trimmer. Using the scoring blade, score at intervals of 1cm.
3. Fan fold at each crease. Join the patterned paper ends with glue or double sided tape.
4. Punch or cut a small base piece of card stock to glue the flower to. Add glue to the punched base. Adhere the fan folded ring to the base, pushing flat to create a flower. Hold flower in place until dry. You can then add a centre of your choice to cover up the messy centre.

ADDIT: Ive had alot of people ask me about the die I use to make these little flowers. So I found a picture of it, if anyone is inerested in buying one
Now a little 'brag moment'....... I am very excited, cos, Ive been asked to be the Guest designer at Creative Scrappers and at Get Picky this month !!! How cool is that.
