Tissue paper flower 's have been around forever. My fascination started when I was a wee girl in Mexico and saw giant colorful bunches in the market's. I seriously made a note in my little 4yr old mind that I would one day make these wonderful paper bloom's! And so I have!
And because I think many are intimidated or feel they are hard to do, I thought you should see just how easy they are!
The basic design is simply 4 or 5 layered squares of tissue paper folded fan style, and secured in the center with a pipe cleaner. Then I simply trimmed the edges to form the style petal's I wanted, and then carefully , layer by layer pulled each up till a fluffy flower is formed. Easy Von peasy!! Try and make a bouquet for yourself! You deserve em! Xox Dawn
|You can trim your edges jagged, rounded, squared off etc. Just play around.|
|Here is the fan effect.|
|These remind me of water lily's or aster's.|
|Peacock blue peonies|
|I put a darker yellow center on these, and combined two texture's.|
|Again I combined two: blush pink, and white|
|Tip: When pulling your layer's apart and up, be sure your fan edges also start in the upward position.|
