Making the Pedals: Start with your colored, square sheet of paper, now grab the bottom right corner and fold it up to the left(see picture 2). Look at picture 2, grab the two corners that are highlighted orange and curl them in towards each other(see pic 3). Bring them in all the way together, in fact, overlap the edges(pic 4).
Your pedals should look like picture 5. Now fold the bottom up, like picture 6. Fold the bottom up again(pic 7). Place your index finger on the center of the bottom and with your other fingers squeeze from the sides(pic 8). This should give you a flat base at the bottom of the flower.
