How to make beautiful flowers from tissue paper

Standard

I’m starting to plan for my daughter’s birthday party in a couple months. The theme had been chosen as Barbie Pegasus and colors are light pink, light blue and lavender.

We will be using streamers and I’ve decided to make some beautiful Tissue Paper Flowers too.

They are simple to make and look exquisite.

To make mine I bought 50 pages of light pink tissue paper in 15″x20″ size.

First I took 5 sheets and cut them in half so then I have 10 sheets measuring 10″x15″.

I stack them together neatly and then fold like an accordion fan. Make the folds about 1 inch. Next fold them in half and wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle and wrap it so it stays closed.

Then I cut the ends to rounded shapes.
Then I was able to begin slowly lifting each sheet to the middle and continuing with each sheet making the flower completely full.

You can experiment with cutting different shapes on the ends for other flowers you make as well.

I plan on making light blue and lavender flowers too. I may put some in vases and hang others with streamers.
