- 20" x 30" tissue paper (non bleeding tissue paper is the best - the cheaper tissue papers can quickly lose their colors when exposed to light) colors and patterns of your choice - you will need two sheets for each flower
- Smooth sided pencil (or pen)
- Chenille stems (one for each flower)
- Wire cutters
- Optional: Aleene's Tacky Dot Singles
Stack two pieces of tissue paper together and fold in half lengthwise.
Cut along folded edge.
Fold in half crosswise. Fold in half again and again until you have folded your tissue down to about 1" wide. If needed, use smooth edge of pencil to get crisp folds and be sure to try to keep your edges aligned.
Open tissue back up and accordion fold (using folds as guide lines) from one end to the other.
Fold in half and secure at center with chenille stem.
Cut ends to point.
To make a fluffy flower, very carefully start to peel back each layer of tissue, pulling it to the center (where the chenille stem is). If you accidentally tear the tissue, don't worry! Keep going.
Carefully fluff out all the tips of the flower petals.
If you want to attach your giant tissue flowers to the wall, cut chenille stem wire to approximately 2" and fold back.
Apply several Tacky Dots to back of flower and attach to wall.
- Or, leave the chenille stems in place and arrange your flowers in a vase.
