In The Spotlight
These flowers are quick to make.
What you’ll need:
- Pastel-coloured tissue paper (you can find sheets of this paper at the Dollar Store).
- Chenille stem
- Cut tissue paper into rectangles of desired size (5”x7”) is a good size.
- Stack around 15 pieces of tissue paper on top of one another.
- Use the same colour or different colours.
- If you want to use a smaller number of pieces of tissue paper, the flower will not be as full.
- Accordion pleat the tissue paper working from the long side.
- Wind one end of the chenille stem around the middle of the accordion pleated tissue paper.
- Trim the ends of each side to give the petals a unique look.
- Trimming the ends into a point or a bump will look very pretty. You can use special scissors for this.
- Gently separate each layer pulling upwards toward the middle of the flower.
- Do the second side.
- Bunch your flowers together and put them in a vase (don’t use water).
