How to make a paper flower!

I really love making little paper flowers from any patterned paper I have. I used this technique on my tea for two layout to make the pink rose-looking flowers.

So, Here's a how-to using different patterned paper and a larger size so you can see the details...
1.Cut patterned paper into a swirl ...

2.Push the center back down into the swirl, making sure the side of the paper showing is the patterned side.

3.Hold on to the center with two fingers then begin to twist the paper around the center to form the flower.
When you're near the end just tuck the end thru a layer of the flower to the back and adhere.
