How To Make Tissue Paper Flowers
I was so deighted to have stumbled across a tutorial on making tissue paper flowersas featured on the blog Mod Vintage Life.
Tissue paper, scissors, wire cutters, wire and fishing line.
Start by folding all 12 pieces of tissue paper like an accordian.
Twist wire around center of folded tissue paper so that it makes a loop. I used the loop to tie the fishing line to later for hanging.
Trim the ends of the tissue paper into a curve…or… you can leave the ends straight and it will make a very nice flower.
Carefully pull each layer up…one at a time. (Don’t pull from the tips or the paper will tear.) In order to make the flower round…pull half the petals up and then turn over and pull the other layers down until you get a rounded pom.
It is a bit of a challenge to not tear these…just take it slow and pull carefully!
Begin folding all 9 pieces of tissue paper like an accordian & repeat the same process just smaller.
The great thing about these tissue paper flowers is they add a lot of color and pizzazz for little money.
