To make the flowers, you will need 7 squares of paper.

Fold the paper into half and then into a quarter.

Then fold the paper diagonally so you get a triangle. At this stage, the triangle should have 8 layers of paper.

Draw an arc like shown and cut the triangle. It now has a rounded edge. Open the folded paper and you will have a flower with 8 petals.

Cut and remove one petal.

Glue the first and the last petal. So now you have a flower with 6 petals. Make 7 flowers like this. Make sure the flowers are all the same size.

Flatten all the flowers.

The floral arrangement will be like this – There will be one flower in the middle and 6 will be glued to it. Each of the 6 petals of the middle flower will be glued to a flower each.

Glue will be applied only at the tip of the petal as shown in the image below.

Apply glue on the 1st petal of the middle flower. Place the second flower on top so that the green lines are superimposed.

Press them well and now apply glue to the 3rd petal and glue another flower on that petal.

Apply glue on petals 1, 2 and 3 and place the 4th flower on top. I have drawn lines to make it easier to understand.

Now flip the whole thing and glue 3 more flowers on the other side also.

You will have something that looks like this.

Place it inside a folded paper. Make sure the flowers are not too close to the spine of the folded paper. There should be space for the flowers to pop up.

Do the same for the next side so that the flower is attached to the paper on both sides. Wait for the glue to dry and enjoy your pop up flower greeting card.
