Ori means folding and gami means paper and this, of course, forms the word origami, that which represents the art of folding paper, often related to the Japanese culture. But did you know that in modern usage, this term is associated with all forms of folding and is not reserved solely for paper?
People who practice modern origami even go so far as using paper cups and glue to make impressive paper sculptures. This Japanese method is called kirigami. Source: Wikipedia

Then cut out a petal from the flower and repeat these steps to make 4 flowers, but, each time you cut the petals, cut one petal more, so: 1 petal, 2 petals, 3 petals and finally 4 petals. Fold the edges, roll the flowers onto themselves, then glue the rolled petals, one over the other.
