Complete directions on how to make carnation flowers out of paper.
What You Need:
What You Do:
- 8 or so sheets of tissue paper (cut into squares or rectangles)
twist ties, ribbon or rope (we used jute rope)
- scissors (optional)
- 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.
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.)
