Here comes an easy tutorial for a paper flower that I call "simple dahlia".
You will need:
- double sided patterned paper
- 1 inch punch
- brads or something else for flower centers
- optional: ink, stickles
Start to punch out 6 circles
Fold 5 of the circles as the picture shows. ( You can fold the circles in half first so you get a guide line for the "point folds". I don't do that because I don't like the look of that fold there, when the flower is done. You what I mean? )
Add glue under the petals and add them one by one to the unfolded circle.
Actually, BEFORE you glue them down you should make sure that your flower is even. Most likely you will have to adjust the folds a bit. So do that before the gluing part.
This is how it will look when it's even and glued down,
and this is how it looks after I inked it, added a brad and some stickles.
Here's how the other dahlia flowers looks like. They just have one more fold.
