Tissue Paper Flower

Use the step-by-step directions below to easily create beautiful tissue paper flowers. This are a great art project for other holidays too! Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the photograph.

STEP ONE
Tissue Flower - Step One
Materials for each flower:
1 pipe cleaner
4-10 cut pieces of tissue paper (the amount & size of the paper is dependent upon how large you want your flower) In the photos I used 8 pieces that were cut approximately 10" x 10") You can great a great pack of various colors @ Wal-Mart for $7.

STEP TWO
Tissue Flower - Step Two
After selecting the number of pieces of tissue paper you want to use, line up all pieces at one end.

STEP THREE
Tissue Flower - Step Three
Begin folding the paper, alternating directions, like a fan.

STEP FOUR
Tissue Flower - Step Four
For best results, make small, uniformed-sized folds.

STEP FIVE
Tissue Flower - Step Five
After you are done folding, find the center of your paper and attach the pipe cleaner to the paper. (The flat side of the paper should be touching your thumb, with the folds facing up.)

STEP SIX
Tissue Flower - Step Six
Using a pair of scissors, cut off a small amount off each end. You can either cut it to a point or rounded end. (The flower here is cut to a point.)

STEP SEVEN
Tissue Flower - Step Seven
You are now ready to begin pulling each individual paper layer towards the center of your flower.

STEP EIGHT
Tissue Flower - Step Eight
Be sure to do this very slowly and carefully because the tissue paper can easily rip.

STEP NINE
Tissue Flower - Step Nine
Your flower is now done! You will want to do a little fine-tuning, moving the paper to make it look like a continuous line around the flower.
