A&L : Tissue Paper Flowers

flowers

This weekend, my sister-in-law (Ashley) came up for some fun-filled CRAFT time!
For those of you who don’t know me, I am an extreme lover of all things CRAFT. 
I love to craft and I have the most wonderful craft room. One day it will be completely organized, and it will be even better!
Ok, so Ashley is hosting a baby shower. Which, thankfully it’s for a girl, because I do much better with PINK than blue…But, one day i’m sure that will change. Until then…All things PINK.
When Ashley first started planning for this, I couldn’t help myself but get on Pinterest and share my favorite ideas with her. One being ’tissue paper flowers’.
Ahhh. Have you seen them?
Easy and beautiful all in one. Could it possibly get any better?
I think not. 
So, I’m going to let you in on our ‘craft time’ and enjoy making ’tissue paper flowers’ with us!

First, you must get your supplies:

supplies

  • Scissors
  • String
  • Tissue Paper (Assorted Colors) {I’m going to let you in a little secret that we learned…the regular tissue paper works so much better than the wax kind. So, you’re welcome.}

Then we start the flower-making process:

  1. Gather 8 sheets of tissue paper and stack them on top of each other. 
  2. Cut the sheets in half. (If you want to make a smaller one, cut in half again, and even smaller…cut in half again)
  3. Start folding the paper aprox an inch thick. (Like you are making a fan)
  4. Fold the ‘fan’ in half.
  5. Tie a string around the middle of the ‘fan’.
  6. Cut the ends to whichever design you prefer. We did a few scallops as well as triangles. Both are cute!
  7. Lay your ‘fan’ down flat and start pulling apart the layers.
  8. Once you have pulled apart all of the layers, you will have a finished product of a beautifully homemade tissue flower!

We decided to make three different sizes, so not all of them would be the exact same. The little ones turned out to be our favorites!
