Tissue Paper Flowers

Remember making these in grade school?  If we made them then we can make them now!  These are SO easy and can be used for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, or any occasion. You can also make flower bouquets.

Materials Needed:

–   Tissue Paper Sheets
–   Florist Wire
–   Scissors



These instructions are from eHow.com.

1. Place eight to 12 full sheets of tissue paper onto a clean work surface. Make sure they are evenly stacked, one on top of another.

2. Fold the sheets accordion or fan style from one short end to the other. The folds should be approximately 1-1/2 inches wide. Be sure to keep the folds even. Use a craft stick to smooth the folds down for a crisp edge.

3. Securely wrap a 15-inch piece of wire around the center of the folded strip.

4. Hold the center of the folded tissue in one hand while wrapping one “leg” of the wire around the opposite leg. Firmly twist the wire legs or ends until they are pinched tightly against the paper center. Twist several more times.

5. Cut the end of each sides of the folded paper with straight or decorative-edge scissors. Cut a round or pointed shape to the ends of the paper to make petal edging.

6. Carefully separate the layers of paper by pulling apart the outer edges near the center. Continue to pull the thin sheets apart to loosen and shape the pompom petals. Repeat with the other side of the pompom.
