This week's DIY will kind of be a two-parter, so please bear with us. Today you will learn how we make tissue paper flowers! What's more exciting?? Next week you will learn what it is we plan to use these babies for!
You will need:
-Tissue paper (5 sheets makes one large ball)
First, gather 5 sheets of tissue paper. You can either choose sheets that are all the same color, or you can get a bit funky and mix and match like we have here.
Try to match up the edges of your tissue paper as well as you possibly can.
Now, fold your entire tissue paper stack like a fan. (Yep, just like the ones you made in grade school!)
Once your paper is all the way folded, grab your floral wire and scissors. Cut one piece of wire in half.
Now, wrap your wire around the middle of your tissue paper fan, making sure it is secure.
Next, use your scissors to round the edges of your tissue paper.
When you have done that, your edges will look something like the photo above.
Now for the fun! Slowly and gently begin to pull apart the pieces of tissue in order to spread them out.
Do this to both sides until your tissue paper is the shape of a flower.
Your finished product should look something like the photo above.
What do you luvvies think?! Stay tuned to find out what we plan to do with these pretty petals!
