tissue paper flowers.

Making tissue paper flowers is a simple process, and all you need are a couple supplies everyone already has in their homes.

We know Mother’s Day is still far off, but we wanted to help you stay ahead.  So we’ve made this adorable tissue paper flowers craft that you can use with your kids, or with after school groups, or Sunday School, or any time you need a cute project to do with kids and want to remind them how amazing their mothers are and have them give them gifts.  (These also work for other events.)


So, here’s to mothers:

tissue flower suppliesGather your supplies.  You absolutely need tissue paper, scissors, tape, and a few pencils (we used chopsticks).  The different colors and wire are optional extras.

Levi cutting strips

First, you’ll probably want to cut the tissue paper in half so that you’re working with a section about a page in length.  You’ll need to cut the tissue paper into strips of varying lengths.  These strips will turn into the petals of your tissue paper flowers. 

Cut different widths

You don’t want the paper to be TOO different in size, or your flowers will look wonky.  Just a little difference.
