Flower Crafts: Tissue Paper Flowers! (Easy Craft Project for Kids)


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!

Materials:

  • rectangular tissue paper, 6-8 single pieces, any size
  • scissors
  • string or yarn

How to Make the Paper Flowers:

  1. Stack the tissue papers together. Start folding the paper, accordion/fan style until you’ve reach the end.
  2. Once you have reach the end, fold in half and tie with the string.
  3. Cut the edges into a petal shape. Keep in mind, the more you cut, the smaller the flower.
  4. Holding the flower and start pulling each layer up.
  5. Ta-da! You’ve just made a paper flower!

Here’s a video tutorial from “feelingfuzzy.blogspot.com

Tips:

  • use more tissue paper to create a fuller bloom
  • try mixing and matching different colours of tissue paper for a multi-colored flower
  • make a bunch in different sizes/colours and arrange in a vase for a easy centerpiece
  • add a string to hang from the ceiling

  1. This is a fun way to spend idle time, especially for the children. But not for the lover or wife. Fake flowers are not romantic.
