My Giant Charlotte Paper Flower
The Charlotte design is a favorite because it is so big, and because of the scalloped petal edges it creates a full yet soft ruffle affect.
The center of this flower can be made 1 of 3 ways. First, using the pompom center, which is easy and no template is required.
Second, fill the whole center in with small petals curled different directions. Or lastly, using a rosette center, which is always fun.

Keep going until the petals meet together naturally.
