DIY: Paper Flowers Version 1 - Tissue Paper Flowers

I (Jessica) have been obsessed with the idea of paper flowers for months now...they seem to be the latest trend in DIY, and for good reason. At a recent craft night, we tackled two versions of the paper flower, and they turned out beautifully!

You can store them pretty easily, so you can use them multiple times! They might get a little crumpled, but you just need to take them out and fluff them up. 

 

what you need:
tissue paper in various colors
scissors
wire or pipe cleaners



cut your tissue paper into 10" squares (you can make the squares any size, depending on what size flowers you want; we learned that squares work best)


carefully select 6 squares of tissue paper


line them up 


starting from the bottom, fold up accordion-style in about 1" folds




once it's all folded up, fold the accordion in half


fold a piece of wire over the middle


cut the ends of your tissue paper into either triangle or circular shape



you can also cut fringe into the ends to create different looks


starting from the top layer of tissue paper, start pulling the tissue away one layer at a time






fluff it all the way out and you're done! 



we made a mountain of flowers, and they have already been used at multiple events. 


happy crafting!
