How to Make a Tissue Paper Flower
You will need:
* Tissue paper, enough to make six pieces each measuring 5 x 10 inches
* Stamp pad (optional)
* One piece of wire wrap or green pipe cleaner
Measure and cut the tissue paper to the specified size. Stack the six sheets, one on top the other. Starting on the short side, make accordion folds on the paper, with each fold being around 1/2 inch wide. When you are done, trim the ends of the folded paper. Rounding the corners will give the petals a soft, ruffled look, while cutting the corners at an angle will give the petals a jagged look. As an additional step, you may want to ink the ends with a stamp pad to give the petals a variegated effect.
Find the middle of the folded paper, and twist the wire wrap around it to secure the paper. If you're making a flower with a stem, bend the pipe cleaner about 2 inches from one end to make a hook, then hook the folded paper in the middle and twist the ends of the pipe cleaner together to form the stem.
Starting with one end of the folded paper, carefully separate the layers one at a time so that paper doesn't tear. Repeat with the other end.
When all the layers are separated, use your fingers to fluff up the paper, arranging the layers so that they look more natural. The tissue paper flower is now ready for use!
