Tissue Paper Flower Tutorial

 

 

While I’m in wedding crafts mode this weekend, I thought I’d post a few “how-to” pictures for tissue paper and tulle flowers.

Very simple and they turn out so pretty 🙂

(Just a little learning curve about being careful with the tissue!)
I layered my flowers for an ombre effect – gold tissue, pink tissue, pink tulle, pink tissue, white tissue, pink tulle, sparkly silver tulle, and finally sparkly gold tulle. But any way you layer them works just fine! I cut my materials to a 6 1/2″ x 10″ size and needed just 5 – 6 flowers for each vase. Scraps of tulle, ribbon, glittered accents and a string of LED lights completes the centerpiece.

Layer and stack the tissue/tulle in whatever order you like.
Fan fold from one end to the other.
Gather together and secure with wire.
One side at a time, bring the folds together and trim the ends.
I rounded mine, but pointed ends make pretty flowers too 🙂
Spread each side out and gently separate the layers.
I “fluff” from the top first, pulling the tulle up and toward the center.
And there you have it!
