How To Make Tissue Paper Flowers
You Will Need
  • Colored tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • And pipe cleaners
step 1 Cut sheets
Cut five sheets of tissue paper to the same size. The bigger the sheets, the bigger the flowers.
spacer tip Mix two or more colors of paper to make really cool-looking flowers.
step 2Stack sheets
Stack the sheets one on top of the other so they overlap exactly.
spacer tip Cut both ends of the paper into points or scallops to make your flowers more interesting and varied.
step 3Fold stack
Fold the stack of tissue paper like an accordion; first to one side, then to the other. Make sure the folds are even.
step 4Make stem
Bend a pipe cleaner three inches from its top and wrap it tightly around the center of the folded accordion. Twist the short end of the pipe cleaner around the long end so that it holds the paper together. This is your stem.
step 5Fluff sheets
Make your flower bloom by gently separating the sheets of tissue paper and fluffing them out. After you’ve made several flowers, arrange them in a vase and make them the centerpiece for dinner tonight.
