Tissue Paper Flowers
These bold blossoms are fun to make and sure to add a bright touch to a Flower Party or any festive event.
FOR EACH FLOWER, YOU'LL NEED
6 large sheets of tissue paper in different colors
1 pipe cleaner
Two 6-foot lengths of green crepe paper
One 4-foot bamboo garden stake
For each flower, stack 6 different-colored sheets of tissue paper, then fold the stack accordion style the long way.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the center.
Round both ends of the stack with scissors.
Open the flower by gently pulling up 1 layer of tissue paper at a time toward the center.
Turn over the flower and use the pipe cleaner ends to attach two 6-foot strips of crepe paper streamers to the bottom of the flower.
Now take those same ends and wrap them around one end of a bamboo garden stake. Tape them in place to secure.
