Project Instructions

Before beginning project, download and print pattern.

Cut scrapbook paper in 8"x8" squares.

Fold the paper diagonally, creating a triangle.

Fold the sides up towards the top of the triangle. It should now look like a 4"x4" square.

Take the piece you just folded and fold it down to the left edge of the square. Repeat for the other side.

With each fold just created, lift up, then press down.

Fold the flap back and create a smaller triangle on both sides.

Fold the piece on the side half way on both sides.

Secure with glue, creating the first petal.

Make four more petals, for a total of five.

Glue them together to form the first flower.

Add gemstone to center if desired.

Repeat Steps 2-11 five more times.

Glue three together to create the first half of the flower ball. Repeat to create other half.

Turn one half upside down, glue in ribbons, leaving a long tail to hang down and a loop from the top to hang.

Glue halves together.
