If you are doing a more natural flower and doing more petal like shapes, I do a similar method but fold my entire fabric until a smaller square/rectangle and cute several petals. You do have more waste though but I save my scraps for leaves and tiny circles.
That's so helpful, just wanted to say thank you!
