Today, I am sharing another tutorial at the Papercraft Star blog for quick and easy flowers using scrap pieces of gift wrap tissue paper. If you're like me, you may have plenty of tissue paper leftover from gift wrapping. If so, these quick and easy spiral flowers are a cinch to create and will use up some of that tissue paper you may have been holding on to!
Now I know I am not the first to do this type of flower. I see them everywhere - in fabric, paper, on t-shirts, shoes, even hair accessories! But I really like using leftover materials to save on the cost of embellishments. Plus, re-purposing our resources is a great way to help save our planet....just a little bit more!
So let's get started!
Glimmer Mist (optional)
Step 1. Take one sheet of tissue paper and fold into three of four layers. Cut the layers into strips approximately 1" wide. Measurements do not have to be exact - just eyeball it.
Step 2. Twist each stack of layered tissue paper. Spray with Glimmer Mist (optional way to color white tissue paper).
Step 3. Roll each piece into a spiral.
Step 4. Punch out 1" circles and glue onto the back of the spiral tissue paper to provide support.
Step 5. Cut tissue paper into the shape of leaves. Spray with Glimmer Mist and adhere to back of spiral flower. Add a piece of bling to the center of the flower.
Now your flower is ready to embellish any of your papercraft creations! I hope you have fun creating your own version of these little flowers! And if you do, I'd love to see it.
Thanks for stopping by!
