Tissue Paper Flowers

Tools & Materials:

  • 10" x 6.5" colored tissue paper (you'll need 7 per flower)
  • Green chenille pipe cleaners
  • Scissors

How to Assemble the Flowers:

  1. Stack 7 pieces of 10" x 6.5" tissue paper. Use the same color or different colors.
  2. Fold the tissue paper up and back repeatedly to create a 1-2 inch wide accordion or fan fold.
  3. Wind one end of the pipe cleaner around the middle of the accordion-folded tissue paper and secure at the end.
  4. Trim the ends of each side of the paper to give the petals a unique look. We recommend trimming the ends into a point (like a triangle) or a half circle.
  5. Starting on one side, carefully separate each layer pulling upwards toward the middle of the flower.
