To make the pleated flower on this card you will need a 1" strip of paper. The longer your paper strip, the more pleats you'll have and the wider your stip, and whatever width of strip you cut will make a flower double that size, so here I have a 2" flower. Once you have cut your strip in your desired measurements, fold the entire length of the strip into an accordian making as small of folds as possible.
Next, attach the two ends together with a staple. Staple your paper wrong side facing out.
Very gently turn your stapled circle inside out. Then you will need a circle punched or cut from a scrap piece of cardstock. Cover the circle with a fast drying glue and press your flower down and hold in place for a moment until the glue starts to set. Once dry, attach a brad to the center of your pleated flower and you're done!
