DIY Tissue Paper Flower


We have our school Talentshow that is coming up this week. Having lots of fun making all the decorations and these paper flowers is just part of all the decor.
Luckily I had help from  awesome staff members and even some of the learners jumped in and got creative.
If this is easy enough for primary school children to do, you will have a breeze making the flowers.

The materials I used:
❤ Bright sheets of tissue paper and/or crepe paper.
❤ Scissors
❤ Bright coloured pipe cleaners

I cut 8 sheets of 20cm x 20cm tissue paper. This depends on the size you want. 
Stack the 8 sheets on top of each other.

Step 1: Cut 8 sheets


Start folding a fan. I made folds about 1cm wide. Complete the whole stack until you have one long piece.

The next step was to tie a pipe cleaner in the middle. String will work as well.
