Tissue Paper Flowers

Tissue Paper Flowers

Start by layering 3 sheets of tissue paper on top of each other. From the shorter end, fold all 3 sheets over about 2.5cm. Continue folding backwards and forwards to create a concertina fold along the length of the tissue paper. Trim the corners of each end. These will create the edges of the petals a bit later. 

Trim the corners of each end. These will create the edges of the petals a bit later. Find the centre of your tissue paper by folding the ends together. Place your pipe cleaner along the fold. Wrap it around the tissue paper and twist to secure in place.  

Carefully open out the concertina on one side. Then separate the 3 layers of tissue paper to create the petals of your flower. Be very careful not to rip the tissue paper.

Repeat step 3 with the other side of the flower. Repeat with the remaining sheets of tissue paper to finish your bouquet of flowers.
