I am using these too!  I have made some with 3, 4, and 5 petals, and will be incorporating them into my bridesmaids’ paper flower bouquets.  I also made teeny tiny ones that I am making the bouts for the grooms men out of.  I love yours!  The 6 petals looks really nice.  One thing I did was purchased chalk ink pads (scrap booking section of hobby lobby has them) and I color the edges of the paper before I use it, just to make it look a little more finished.  I have been mostly just using scrapbooking paper, I had no idea hobby lobby sold oragami paper!

I saw these on etsy when i was just looking up random ideas for flowers. We are having a music themed wedding and our colors are purple, charcoal and white. So my bridal party and i have been folding purple and antiqued music sheets. im so excited they are coming out amazing. Rather than the jewel I am attaching different colored and sized buttons to the center. They really are coming out amazing and worth the effort. They look so complicated but they arent!! Congrats and good luck with all the folding. Five sheets per flower is a bit of work =]

Can anyone direct me to instructions for these?  I am truly impressed.

I’m using these for placecards. In the center I’m using a metal bracket to secure a white gift tag that I’ll print the guest name on. 10 done…50 more to go!
