Take a rectangle piece and fold all four corners in toward the middle.

Fold it in half with the folded corners on the inside of your fold.

Fold it in half again so that the edges and corners meet.

Open it back up and place a line of glue along the open edge of your shape (not the creased edge). Fold it back down and allow the glue to dry completely. Repeat these steps for the remaining three rectangles.

Line up the creased edges of your pieces and glue them together.

Make enough flowers for a bouquet to set on the table or tie a few with a ribbon to give to a special teacher.
