Here is where I learned to make mine: tissue paper flowers
Tissue Paper Flower
- Stapler (not needed if you use ties)
- tissue paper – several different colors
- ties(not needed if you use stapler)
The supplies and tools are easy and cheap. You probably have most of it. I ran to the grocery store and found some tissue paper. It would of been cheaper if I got it from Walmart or in bulk but I only live about 5 blocks from the grocery store so that is where I went. I saved in time if nothing else.
Take 2 pieces of paper and fold in half and then in half again.
Next Fold 1 corner to the other side to make a Triangle. Cut bottom part that is not the triangle. Unfold the triangle. Then use your scissors to slid through the edges and cut all the layers apart, so you have 8 separate pieces.
Fold the layers back in forth in a fan fold, about 3/4 of an in. or so making about 7-8 pleats. Staple or use a twist tie around the center. I found that the stapler didn’t go through all the layers plus I don’t have one at my house so I use the twist ties from some trash bags. String or other thin wire like floral wire would work too.
Cut the folded stack on both ends into a rounded shape. Make sure to cut through all layers and on the sides. Carefully pull the layers apart and fluff your flower. Ta da you have your first spring flower. I hung them in a store window for spring. I added a spring banner. You will be able to see the tutorial for that soon.
Repeat with your other sheets of tissue paper until you have an entire garden of flowers. I hung the flowers on fishing line for a beautiful look. Measure and cut the amount of fishing line you need adding an extra amount of line for a loop and to go around each flower. I just make a loop of fishing line at the top to hang on a hook. I then wrapped the fishing line around the center of the flower and tied a knot. Then I repeated until all the flowers were attached.
