Then pick 7 or 8 for your flower...

add a drop of hot glue to the first petal, 
then stack on, adding a drop of glue to the center of each layer...

and starting with the top petal, 
crinkle and "fluff" until you have your gorgeous flower.

throw in a few Chiclets...

and you have a reason to throw a

My Fiesta Flowers are based on this awesome DIY
