Dahlia Fold Technique

We're making Dahlia Folds this month at Technique Time Tuesday! It's a cool little fold technique made with circles! Come join the fun! :)

I turned my Dahlia Folds into flower buds for a variation on the large Dahlia Fold Circle and created the card below.  For the large buds, I tucked three Dahlia Folds into one Dahlia Fold.  The smaller buds were created with just one tucked into another.

I started thinking about what other shapes I could use this technique on.  What about a heart?  That'd be pretty cool right? 

I was hoping to have a video for you but I'm having tehnical difficulties so instead I have a tutorial which lays out the process.
