Simple Paper Flower

I was inspired earlier today to create a flower.  Instead of looking for instructions (likely the smart move) I said to myself you can do this.

 I tried several ideas that didn't look like flowers when I was done.  In the end here is what I did.

Step 1: punch several paper circles and glue them together at the center.

Step 2: fold a pyramid in the center of your flower and then fold the other circles around this pyramid

Step 3:  you have a folded flower bud you could stop here or you could unfold the petals to open your flower
