Easy tissue paper flowers
- tissue paper in all sorts of colors (or crepe paper)
- bamboo skewers
- green paint
- brush (I used these paint brush pens)
- clear glue pen
- rubber bands
- Paint the skewers green and leave to dry
- Take a few strips of tissue paper about 2″ wide and 4″ long and fold twice. I used 7 layers.
- Grab the scissors and cut a V shape at each end of the folded strip.
- Unfold the strips, still keeping them on top of each other, gather in the middle with your fingers, then fold up from the middle, making a sort of a bouquet.
- Using your fingers, press the bottom of the “bouquet” and secure with a rubber band.
- Take a strip of green tissue paper, about 1″ wide and 6″ long and start wrapping it around the base of the flower to cover the elastic band. Secure it with glue at the start. Make sure you cover a tiny bit of the skewer too, then when you’re done wrapping, press the ends with your fingers against the skewer.
- Ruffle the petals a bit and you’re done! Display your beautiful tissue paper flowers in a vase!
