To make a 2D flower: Pull sheets toward the center of the wire on both halves so that there is a flat back to the flower.

To make a 3D flower: On the left side of the wire, pull the sheets upward toward the wire, then flip the flower over and pull the sheets on the right side of the wire in the opposite direction to create a full ball-like flower.
