This is what I've been up to lately, making these delicate tissue flowers. The flowers will be glued onto contorted willow branches as part of a table centerpiece (providing all goes well). I'm really happy with the results, light, delicate & airy. Perfect for summer decorations.Supplies:
string - waxed dental floss works well
Layer four pieces of tissue paper together measuring at 2 1/4" by 3 1/2". Fold together using an accordion fold (refer to picture).
When you're finished with the accordion fold, it should look like the picture on the left. Pinch together and place on its side. It will now look like the picture on the right. Cut where yellow lines are shown, through all layers.
Your tissue flower should now look like the image on the left. With string, tie a loop around the center of the tissue where you made the slits. Now unfold tissue.
Pull the first layer up. Begin to peel all four layers apart (picture on right). Now peel all the layers from the other side. Done.
