Flowers

Tissue Paper Bouquet

Materials
  • Colored tissue paper, cut into large squares
  • Scissors
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Florist tape

Project
  1. Fan-fold the tissue paper.
  2. Use the scissors to round the edges on both sides of the folded tissue paper.
  3. Wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle of the folded tissue paper. Fluff the paper to give it fullness.
  4. Wrap florist tape from the bottom of the flower to the bottom of the pipe cleaner.

Variations
  • Each of the flowers can be cut differently on the edges of the folded tissue paper. Craft stores sell inexpensive scissors with different blade patterns.
  • Put two different colors of tissue paper together or streak a single color with colored markers for added color.
  • Make your own vase out of a decorated juice can. Present your tissue paper bouquet's to Mom's for Mother's Day.
