Making flowers

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
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Instructions:

  • 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).
