Tissue paper flowers

These are really easy to make and all you need is a few bits of tissue paper and some pipe cleaners!


Cut out 4 circles - they don't need to be perfect

Lay them on top of each other

Push a pipe cleaner through the middle of the circles

Twist the end of the pipe cleaner into a ball to secure it

Scrunch up the tissue paper

Open them out again to finish the flower

To make the leaves, cut out 2 rectangles of green tissue paper

Fold them in half 

Cut a leaf shape, leaving the folded edge uncut so they remain attached

Open the leaves out

Lay them in position where you would like them on the stem

And twist the pipe cleaner around them to secure them.


To make a different type of flower, again start with 4 circles of tissue paper.

Fold the circle in half, then in half again, then again, and again!!!

Cut the wide edge in a semi-circle

open the flowers out and push the pipe cleaner through as before and make a ball to secure it

twist the pipe cleaner around the bottom of the petals 

separate the petals out and add leaves as before!
