Tissue Paper Flowers


These flowers are quick to make and the children enjoy making them. Younger children may need some help with accordion-pleating the tissue paper.

What you'll need:

*Pastel colored tissue paper
*Chenille stem

How to make it:
* Cut tissue paper into rectangles of desired size (5"x7" is the size pictured )


* Stack around 15 pieces of tissue paper. Use the same color or different colors. If you want to use a smaller number of pieces of tissue paper, flower will not be as full.


* Accordion pleat the tissue paper working from the long side.
Wind one end of the chenille stem around the middle of the accordion pleated tissue paper.


* Trim the ends of each side to give the pedals a unique look. Trimming the ends into a point (like a triangle), or a bump (like a half circle) will look very pretty.


* Gently separate each layer pulling upwards toward the middle of the flower.


* Do the second side.


Let the children make a couple of flowers and put them in a May Basket. Early on the morning of May 1st hang on your mother's door, a neighbor's door, a friend's, or anyone special to you. Remember, it's supposed to be a surprise!

If you want to give your flowers some leaves, include a stack of green tissue paper folded accordion style during step 3. Trim the green paper into a shape of a leaf.
