Tissue Paper Flowers
These flowers are made from folded up tissue paper. My mom made them, she got the idea from enchantedlearning.com. The directions are:
1. Cut about 4-6 pieces of tissue paper (about 8x10 inches) and put them in a pile and fold it like an accordion.
2. Tie the center of the folded paper with a green pipe cleaner. My mom also scalloped the edges at this point also.
3. Gently pull each piece of paper towards the top center of the flower, separating each sheet of paper form the other, forming the petals of the flower.
4. You can twist the stem part of the pipe cleaner around a stick to make it stand up better in a vase.
Have fun creating them with different colors and patterns of tissue paper!
