The person that took him down a few notches?
Use your scissors to cut notches along the folded sides of the paper.
The margins of these leaf-like branches are more or less crenately notched, the notches representing buds, as do the spine-clusters in the spiny genera; and from these crenatures the large showy flowers are produced.
Secure each partially folded loop with a small glue dot, then add small notches at the edge of your strip.
