Original instruction was found at the Folding Tree.  This one is definitely a little more challenging than the kleenex flowers.

 
Japanese children grow up making paper flowers starting in elementary schools (see link). These are used for school festivals and other events, it is not uncommon to get an assignment to make paper flowers at home.  Believe me, not all Japanese people are good at crafts.  We just get a lot more practice in school!  Now there are some amazing crafters, too. 

Check this blog with beautiful flowers.  I have to try this one next.  
This post is instructions for tissue paper flowers for children.
