Tissue Paper Flower Tutorial


A while back I posted a similar tutorial, but it's such an easy way to wrap a present, I thought it was worth posting another one.  Not to mention, it's wedding shower season.  Have you noticed?  Top your present with a flower like this - the bride will love it!

Tissue Paper Flower Supplies:
- (5) sheets tissue paper, cut to 7" x 12"
- 1 piece floral wire, 12" long


1. Cut your tissue paper to size and place short side in front of you.

2.  Fold accordion style in 1" folds until your tissue paper looks like this:


3.  Cut ends of tissue paper into half circles, like I did in photo below, or cut into points for a different effect.

 
4. Fold floral wire in half and place in the middle of tissue paper.  Twist ends to secure.




5.  Carefully pull up the first layer of tissue paper.


6.  Continue pulling each layer up toward the top until all layers of tissue are separated and flower is formed.

7.  Now, to wrap the present.  I've mentioned it lots of times before on the blog - my favorite way to wrap presents is with simple Kraft paper.  I just love the natural look of it and it makes a great background for almost any color of ribbon or bow.


8.  Attach flower to ribbon and your package is ready.







Make a few flowers at once to keep on hand and the next time you need to wrap a present, you will be ready!

I like when little touches like that make such a big impact. It looks chic-er than just using one of those store bought bow thingys, lol.

What a great tutorial! I love wrapping in kraft paper, too. I used to work in a mom-and-pop bookshop and we wrapped our books in kraft paper - I always thought it was so classic and a bit romantic :)
