How To Make Tissue Paper Flowers
Bring a touch of spring to your home all year 'round with this guide to making beautiful tissue paper daffodils by creative crafts person Danielle Coolbear Jenkins from djcoolbear.co.uk.
You Will Need
- tissue paper
- pre-cut tissue paper shapes
- old cereal box
- pipecleaners / floristry wire
- floristry tape
- Fold a circle of paper in half and then into thirds. Use the lines created from these folds to create a curved star-shape template for the petals of the flower. Use this paper template to create a cardboard template so you can make multiple flowers.
- You can create the bell for the centre of the daffodil in two ways, either by folding a circle of tissue paper in half and rolling it up, which makes a highly stylised bell, or by folding the circle all the way around like a concertina. The latter method is more time consuming but gives a more realistic look to the bell.
- Push the bell through the petals and attach them to the pipecleaner stem with floristry tape. The floristry tape will also hide the join between the flower and the stem.
