I've found a 5petals flower paper piecing....

cut files I made last March to use as a card's embellishment added to a Cricut E as a BDgift to my sister.
Since this 5petals flower its not my original idea and...worse... I don´t remember from which source I got it, I'll ask you, please...... if you know that... please let me know so I can add the credits on here.
Hope it can be useful to someone. HERE and HERE
You need just the paper piecings cut-outs, a pivot brad and some white glue & a hot glue gun to keep parts in place.
Cut two units of each petal and glue front and back......stack petals following sizes...if you´d like you can use a white glue drop to glue the little petal to the medium one....finishing with the bigger one. All of them buiding one of the 5 petals. Let the external edges free....so if someone would like to curl them a bit ....it´s an easy task.
Stack again the five finished petals and leaves ....inserting a brad as a pivot....I mean a brad which can be opened...one "arm" to right...another one to left.Now the flower reminds you an oriental fan.Make sure to yourself that all the petals and leaves are moving around the pivot brad.
Using a hot glue gun...put a drop over the brad's head and glue the pistils center.... over it another ochre little circle.
At last, cut or bend the brad's arms parts that are longer than center paper circle...then using hot glue add the olive green circle to the back center covering the brad'arms.
Have fun!
