After cutting out 8 circles, lightly spritz with water. Scrunch each circle into a small ball.
I made my flowers from computer paper and card stock. You might choose paper in solid or a printed pattern. For an added dimension, the edges can be inked just after punching them out and prior to scrunching.
Note about using pages from a book: I found that when making these flowers using pages from an older dictionary that they came out better when I did not wet them. Perhaps there is a greater fabric content but they simply did not hold the scrunch when wet! Pages from a regular book may not react this way but if you find they do, skip the wetting step.
