What kind of paper did you use? I used regular printer paper and I think I did the folds right but when I blow inside nothing pops out Happy

I hope you see this soon! :O Or if someone else understands, I hope to find some help. I'm trying to make this for mother's day [tomorrow], but I don't understand where the petals come from? I made the rose and had it puff, but can't find the petals! Ah! Please, help!

These are absolutely gorgeous, but...I was always under the impression that these origami flowers were tulips. Roses are rounder, I thought. Either way, great job. Beautiful craftmenship and I love the stems and leaves.
