I love creating flowers with different shapes. It brings dimension and a great look to any of your projects.
Here is a great way of creating a flower using the octagon shape:
Embellishment for the center of the flower
Step One: Print the template and cut out three different sizes of the Octagon. Trace them on patterned paper and cut them.
Step Two: Cut with the scissors on each point to almost the center. You want to leave space all around.
Step Three:Fold one side of the petal in and then do it to the opposite side. Repeat this for the rest of them.
Step Four:They will look like this.
Step Five: Then pile them on top of each other and add embellishment in the middle.
