Step 1:

Remove the top fold of the paper cup using a craft knife. Then using a pair of scissors, fix and cut some of the excesses on the top part to make it leveled. Next, cut the side connection and make 16 strips leaving a half-inch allowance at the bottom of each one.

Step 2:

Using a pen, slightly twist the top of each strip to open up the cup. The result will look like a flower.
