So, if you don’t know me well, I’ll tell you something about myself…I love Mexico! I love the heat, beaches, culture, colors….so many beautiful colors!! Last week my friend Alli turned 30, and we threw her a surprise party….and we wanted bright colorful decorations for her party, and since she loves Mexico too, these flowers were perfect for her party!!! So, here is a tutorial on how to make these beautiful paper flowers! Hope you like them!
You need 3 things: Tissue paper, scissors, and yarn, string or pipe cleaners. I got my beautiful tissue paper at Hummingbird Office & Art Supply store on Quadra Island.
Cut tissue paper for small, medium or large flowers. I cut the tissue paper in half for lrg. flowers, 1/4 of a sheet for med. flowers, and 1/8 of a sheet for sm. flowers.
Choose 5 or 6 colors.
Fold accordion style.
Fold in half to find the center.
Cut notches out on each side.
Tie your yarn in the center.
Scallop cut the ends for more of a flower effect.
Lay your tissue paper out like a fan.
Pull one color at a time up to the center.
When you are done one side, repeat on the other side.
Now, you have a beautiful flower! Congrats you did it!!!
