Dahlia Fold Flower
Adore by Lucy Chesna Supplies Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee; Letters: Heidi Swapp; Jillibean Soup; Ribbon: Pink Paislee; Swirl: Pink Paislee; Ink: Ranger, Colorbox; Other: Tissue paper

I love creating flowers of paper to coordinate with my project that I am doing. It does not matter what size you create this flower, it's a great touch to anything that you do.

Supplies: Circle or Scallop Punches
Double sided patterned paper
Step One: Punch out 5 or 6 circles

Step Two: Fold the patterned paper circle in half, open it and then fold the in half the other way.

Step Three: Decide which side you want to be the main background. In the lower area of the circle, fold a small petal shape upward and then do it to the other side

Step Four: Turn it over and fold the petal inward like a paper airplane. Repeat the oter side.

Step Five: Repeat the steps one through four to create the rest of the petals. Punch out some smaller circles in green cardstock or patterned paper then fold the circle in half and do it again the other way.

Step Six: In the lower area fold the paper inward until it overlaps each other.

Step Seven: Adhere the flower in the middle of the small circle and then glue the overlap on top. Repeats steps five through seven to make the rest of the stem base.

Here is what they look like:
As you can see it’s so easy to make and makes such an amazing statement on your layouts and cards.
