I am not certain about Grimeca's system, but in most open-system Hydraulic units when you do that it is simple. Take a thin but wide bladed flat screwdriver and gently pry them open. The volume of fluid will merely force back into the reservoir.
On a closed-sysem it is a little more complex. If a gentle force as in the former will not work, place a light pressure on the pads as described and open the lower bleeder ever so slightly. Only enough to relieve the line. Close the bleeder immediately, as you do not want anything getting sucked back in.
That should do it. Unfortunately a very common mistake, intentional or not. No big.
