Fit steps or patio first...

Hi all,

Ive build out a patio in my back garden and have now come to the stage of building the steps from my French doors down to the patio. However, I've been reading that I should have laid the steps first...

Should I -
A - lift the flags where the steps will be, fit the steps then refit the flags around it.
B - build the steps on top of the patio.

C - cut out the outline of the steps and build the steps within that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
