Here's what you'll need:
Two Sided Paper
Square Punch - Any Size - this will be the size of your finished flower.
Brad or Button
1.) Cut 5 squares from two sided paper.
2.) Fold 4 squares in half. The patten on the inside will be the pattern that is revealed when your flower is complete. I drew where the folds should be on the sample square next to the folded sample.
3.) Fold in half the again the opposite direction.
4.) Fold a third time from corner to corner to form a triangle.
5.) Fold in the two opposite sides of the square to form a small folded square. It should look like this.
6.) Fold back the top corner of the quare to reveal the paper patern on the inside. Do not fold all the way back Leave a slight edge of the outer paper showing If you fold all the way back the flowers will be hard to open after you've attached the brad.
6.) Glue the four squares on to the last square. Make sure the folded down corners all point to the center. It should look like this.
7.) Pierce a hole through the center and add a fancy brad or button.
You can use these for scrap booking, card making, or even simple magnets for your fridge. The hardest part is deciding which side of your pretty paper you want to show! And now - do I want to make circles or squares? Have fun!
