  1. Fold circle in half
  2. Fold in half to make four sections. Crease only on edge.
  3. Open and fold one quarter session up.
  4. Fold in half with white side facing out and fold 2nd quarter to match.
  5. Turn over. Bring the edge of fold to the center fold. Crease.
  6. Bring up the other side of center fold. Your petal is complete.

I noticed the first card has very soft creases and it gives the flower a fuller look.

If you were to make a stack of thank your cards a circle squeeze punch would make everything go faster.
