Take the colour sheet. With the help of a ruler measure the width as 11.5cm and mark the same with a pencil. Now fold the sheet from the marked area.
Mark the dimensions on the sheet with the help of a pencil. Draw the geometric figures only on the folded portion of the sheet. Please check below for the markings. This is how the sheet will look after all the dimensions are drawn on the same.
Now cut along the marked areas with the help of scissors. Use a cutter to cut the petal shaped objects.
From the lower edge of the petal shape draw vertical lines. Draw as many lines as the number of petals present on the sheet. Use a cutter to rub on the surface of these lines. Do not cut these lines. This process is only to make the folds easier and get the perfect folds.
