It’s still flower season, so here’s a fun and easy DIY tissue paper flower craft that’s perfect for decorating – centerpieces, backdrops, or even as props for fairy/butterfly photos. This is also an easy and fun craft to do with kids.

I don’t know about you but I save tissue paper to recycle and reuse for my next gift. I have saved up for years so let me just say I’m nowhere near a shortage of tissue paper any time soon! 

You just need to find multiple sheets that are the same color and size. Use green tissue as the leaves and any color of your choice (I used yellows and whites) for the center.

SUPPLIES:

Leaves: 2 tissue paper sheets of the same size and color

Petals: 4 tissue paper sheets of same size and color (same size as leaves or slightly smaller)

Center: 2 tissue paper sheets, ⅓ width of the petals

Scissors

Pipe cleaner

 

DIRECTIONS:

Step #1

Layer each piece of tissue paper, starting with the leaves on the bottom, then the petals, then the center.

 

Step #2

Fold one inch from the bottom of the paper, turn over and fold another one inch segment. Repeat like an accordion.

 

Step #3

Separate each section and refold following the accordion folds.

 

Step # 4

Fold center section in half. Then, using your scissors, cut along the open side about 1-2 inches deep, ¼ inch apart.

 

Step #5

Fold petal section in half. Then, using your scissors, cut a ½ circle along the open side.

 

Step #6

Fold leaves section in half. Then, using your scissors, cut a ¼ circle along the open side.

 

Step #7

Place each section on top of each other as in step 1 and fold along accordion folds.

 

Step #8

Position the pipe cleaner along the center and twist to tighten.

 

Step #9

Very gingerly open and fluff out each section starting with the center, then the petals, and then the leaves.

 

Now you have a beautiful flower!

 

 

There are so many different ways to use this DIY tissue paper flower! You can use them for fun decorations in a kid’s bedroom or on their door. They also make great party decorations, and on gifts as a fun bow. You can switch out the colors however you’d like and even use them throughout the year depending on the season and what you have going on. The opportunities are endless!
