Fluffy Tissue Paper Flowers

Hello everyone! Today I am going to show you how to make fluffy tissue paper flowers! This is very easy to do and even kids can join in on the fun!

Supplies

SUPPLIES:

Step1

First you need to decide how fluffy you want your flower. If you want your flower to have a lot of petal layers, use more tissue paper. For this very fluffy flower, I used one entire package of tissue paper, which had 6 sheets. Cut the tissue paper until the width of the tissue paper is how wide you want your flower to be. Now do the same for your center tissue paper, but make the width as large as you want the center to be.

Step2

Begin to accordion fold your tissue paper. I made my folds approximately 1”.

Step3

Keep folding the paper up and down.

Step4

Fold until the entire length has been folded into an accordion. If there is any excess, trim it off. Do the same accordion fold for your center tissue paper.

Step5

Now you want to give your tissue paper an edge. For the center tissue, I chose to cut spiky triangles. For my petals, I made the edges rounded.

Step6

Now place your center in the approximate center of your petal tissue paper.

Step7

Collapse the according folds and secure with the chenille stem.

Step8

Spread the according folds open a bit. The chenille stem marks the very center of your flower.

Step9

Slowly peel the layers of the center tissue paper apart and pull towards the center.

Step10

Continue doing this for all the layers on both sides of the center. If your center is not as around as you’d like, you can trim the edges. Once you have pulled up all the layers, the chenille stem should be hidden.

Step11

Do the same with the petal tissue paper. The picture above shows one layer of the petal tissue paper pulled up.

Step12

Continue with all the layers

Step13

This is the final result! You can make many different variations of this flower using the same technique, but vary how much tissue paper you use, the color, and the shape of the edges.

Step14

In this example, I used less tissue paper and three different colors. I gave both the hot pink and the light pink a rounded edge, but I fringed the edge of the white tissue paper.

Step15

You can see how this flower is less dense than the previous flower.
