Easy DIY Paper Flower tutorial

Have you always wanted to try your hand at paper flowers, but don't have everything you need? Here's how to make a super easy flower! It take about 30 min to make a large one. This link is what I used to make them, but I put my own spin on the flowers by making them pointy-er(if that's even a word!) at the edges.
You will need:

  •  Six sheets of construction paper 
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Scissors

  1. Fold one sheet of  paper into a triangle and trim excess paper to make a square. Unfold.
  2. Fold the bottom corner to the top. This will make a triangle.
  3. Fold both corners of the triangle up into the middle corner to make a diamond. (or a square, depending on how you look at it)
  4. Fold those same points down. The folded edge will line up exactly on top of the outside edge of the square. if you don't do it exact, your flower will look a little less delicate and more abstract, which is kinda cool as well.
  5.  This next part is a little tricky. Open those points by running your finger through the inside and then flatten them.
  6. Fold the top triangles towards you so they are level with the edges of the paper.
  7. Hot glue the edges together and fluff them out, and you have a petal! Repeat this six times, and hot glue the petals together as you go for an awesome flower!
