Summary:

Complete directions on how to make carnation flowers out of tissue paper.

What You Need:

  • 8 or so sheets of tissue paper (cut into squares or rectangles)
  • twist ties, ribbon or rope (we used jute rope)
  • scissors (optional)

What You Do:

First you take about 6 to 8 pieces of tissue paper squares (or rectangles).

Stack all sheets together, one on top of the other.

Begin folding your paper back and forth like an accordion or a fan.

When complete, secure in the middle with a twist tie, ribbon or rope.

Now it’s time to peel up each sheet one at a time. Work from side to side, left to right.

Bring all sheets to the middle until you are finished.

Notes:

If you want the flowers smaller, cut the sheets down by length.
To make different shapes, clip the tips before unfolding — only a trim. (triangle, points, wavy, square, etc.)
