Create Spirals

Cut along the spiral lines until you reach the center (image 1). Using a small skewer, round chopstick or lollipop stick, start from the outside point and tightly roll paper onto itself until you reach the center (image 2). Remove the skewer, and repeat for all flowers.

Create Flower Shape

Press the paper spiral, squishing it in two directions to keep it from being perfectly round (image 1). Let go, and let the spiral unwind naturally (image 2). Repeat for all flowers.

Glue Paper Flower

Dab a small amount of hot glue onto the center bottom of the flower, and press the spiral down into the glue to keep it from unwinding. Repeat for all flowers.
