Accordian Flower Tutorial

1. Start with a 1x12 strip of paper, stapler, button.
2. Make an accordian fold going back and forth with the whole strip of paper.
3. Stick the ends together and staple them.
4. Lay it flat, it will look like a star.
5. Take the edges and push them all toward the center of the shape.
6. Top it with a matching button, using a pop dot, and put a pop dot on the bottom to adhere it to a card or layout.
You can see the layout in my prior post to see how I used one of these flowers.
