What You'll Need:

  • 4 Sheets of 6" x 6" Multi-Colored Tissue Paper for Each Guest
  • 1 Pipe Cleaner for Each Guest
  • A Pair of Scissors

At the Party:

Have each of your guests follow these steps to make a tissue flower:
  1. Stack 4 pieces of tissue paper together.
  2. "Accordion fold" the stack using approximately 1" folds to create a 1" x 6" strip.
  3. Cut both ends of the tissue strip to round the corners.
  4. Pinch the center of the tissue strip.
  5. Fold the pipe cleaner over the pinched part of the tissue strip, and secure it by twisting the ends together tightly.
  6. Fan open both sides of the tissue paper.
  7. Gently pull up each of the four layers of tissue to form the flower's petals. The pipe cleaner forms the stem.
