This week I made some VERY SIMPLE tissue paper flowers for a tea party birthday.
And because I had one person ask me how (and I really like her), here's the instructions. I'm sure I didn't think this up myself though, so if anyone can remind me where I saw it, please let me know!
|This is the only tidy space in my house today.|
I cut a strip off the end like this (this is the third strip I cut, the paper was longer to start with).
Then I laid out the strip, tidied it up so each piece was on top of each other properly (not staggered like they are in the pack), and cut it into three (didn't measure - just approximated), and trimmed the corners like so.
I then had to fix this situation. Hmmm, does dirt count as a protein?
Then take 3 pieces and pinch in the middle (I tried to put the lighter colour in the middle, but that's just being perdantic).
Wrap a piece of florist's wire around and twist to secure.
Fan out the 'petals' a bit, and you're done!
Before you know it, you'll have done another two...
... and maybe some green ones for leaves...
And you'll have a lovely bouquet like this.
Which you may like to try wearing on your head. And setting the timer to take a photo.
Totally up to you.
