Another tutorial for you, a non-Stampin' Card!

This is my second post for today and I am showing you something different.....no stampin'.....just a flower fold card. This fold is called the "Dahlia Flower Fold":

Here is how I created this flower:

Step 1:

Using double-sided Designer Series Paper (DSP), cut 8 with a circle punch the size of your choice. The larger the punch, the larger the flower:

Step #2: Fold circle in half to create a score line:

Step #3:

Starting in the center of the circle opposite the fold line, fold two sides in as pictured below:

Step 4:

Turn paper over and fold each side towards the center just like you would a paper airplane. Create 8 total in the same manner:
Step 5:

Using a square piece of cardstock in your desired color, start adhering the petals side-by-side to complete a circle:

This is a close-up of what your completed flower should look like:
