First I want to show you the finished flower to you know what you are working toward:
You will start rolling from the end you cut to a point and this will be your flower center so try to keep it rolled fairly neatly, yeah don't look too closely at mine huh .It does not matter which way you roll, over or under, unless you have a front and back to your paper.
This is what your rolled flower will look like after you remove the pen or tweezer before you have done any shaping, which you do by releasing the spiral a little and unwinding it from the center using your fingers, practice will teach you the easiest way to do this. You can always rewind it if it spirals out of control, don't ask me how I know.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. I love to make my own flowers and very seldom buy them, not just am I too cheap, I always run out late at night.
I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial on how to make your own flowers without having to have any fancy stuffs. I would love to see some flowers you have made using this tutorial :)
Have a wonderful creative day.
