 2. Fold in half again.
 3. Fold in half once more.
 4. Open last fold and cut along folded seams.
 5. Cut top seams.
6.  Divide into 2 stacks of 4 sheets.
 7. Stack 4 sheets together.
8. Pleat stack of tissue.

 9. Fold pleated stack in half.
 10. Secure tissue sheets with floral wire.
 11. Twist floral wire.
12. Cut the edges to round them.

13. Open flower by pulling tissue sheets one by one to the middle. Make sure to rotate sides.
14. Fluff finished flower :)
