Origami Flower: Tutorial

Okay, so these little flowers, are so darn cute!
And a great time passer!
First, thanks to my friend, Maddie. She showed my how to make these during the Super Bowl!
Aren't they adorable? I have them laying around in my room, everywhere!

First you need 3x3 Origami Paper
If you don't have any laying around, you can use 'Post It' sticky notes. 
(The sticky side will make it more difficult though.) 
And a glue gun.

Start by laying the paper down back side up.
And fold it corner to corner, creating a triangle.

Then take the right corner and bring it to the top.
And again with the left corner.

When your done you should have a diamond with a slit down the middle.

Next step is complicated!
At the top of your triangle is a slit.
Open it, so it looks like the picture.

And push it down.
As shown in the picture.
(It's hard, so don't get mad if you mess up.)

It should look like this. ^^
Repeat with the other triangle.

It should look like this. ^^

Fold down the "Mini" triangles at the top.
On both sides.

Fold your triangle in half.
(Do it to the other side, too.)

It should look like this. ^^
Now take your glue gun, and put some glue on one of the flaps.

And push both sides together.

And you've made one pedal.
Repeat the steps 4 more times and then glue all the pedal together.
And you'll have an Origami Flower!

So what did you think?
Did you like the flowers?
Did I explain it well?
Like the pictures? ( Took them with one hand!)
Let me know!!
