Fresh cut flowers are lovely, but these paper flowers can last almost indefinitely! This is a fun and easy craft that literally takes minutes to make and only requires a few simple materials. It’s chic enough to use as decoration around the house, but it’s also a great craft for kids!
- rectangular tissue paper, 6-8 single pieces, any size
- string or yarn
How to Make the Paper Flowers:
- Stack the tissue papers together. Start folding the paper, accordion/fan style until you’ve reach the end.
- Once you have reach the end, fold in half and tie with the string.
- Cut the edges into a petal shape. Keep in mind, the more you cut, the smaller the flower.
- Holding the flower and start pulling each layer up.
- Ta-da! You’ve just made a paper flower!
