Next, cut a strip of crepe paper that is about 6 inches wide, and then fold it into fourths. Cut a round-ish petal sort of shape like I’ve shown above. The pencil marks were for the tutorial’s sake only.
At this point, the flower will have a somewhat conical shape. Stick one finger down into the center of the flower to secure it on your work surface, and use the other hand to push the bases of the petals down so the flower opens up.
