Example after Fold

Step Two
Fold that same corner back down with bottom edge parallel to the new bottom edge

Repeat step Two until all 8 tags are folded.
*NOTE: always have the tags facing the same direction when you begin to fold. This ensures your flower inner petals will always be facing the correct direction.

Step Three
Lay your folded tags (flower petals) out next to each other with the inner point facing into the center and the top edges parallel with the previous petal.

You now have your flower

Step Four
Adhere your button into the center of your flower.
