Fold one paper square in half to form a triangle. Fig.1.
With folded edge on bottom and tip of triangle on top, fold side corners up to meet the top tip of triangle. This should form a diamond shape. Fig. 2
Fold one side flap in half lengthwise by matching the folded edges. Fig. 3 Repeat on other side.
Open up both side flaps. Fig. 4
Fold flap tip down to make a crease, then fold back to tuck into flap. Repeat on other side. Fig. 5
Fold flap in on middle crease. Repeat on other side. Fig. 6
Bring side flaps together and secure with glue, this will form a cone shape (one petal). Fig. 7 You will need 60 petals for this project.
You will glue 5 petals together to form one flower. Fig.8 Start by gluing one petal together at their creases. Continue to add on one petal at a time, allowing glue to dry between each addition. Repeat to create 12 flowers.
Glue 6 flowers together to create a dome. Fig. 9
Glue ribbon to the flat side of one dome for decoration and to hang from.
