Easy Tissue Paper Flowers

Blooming Tissue Paper

tissue-flowers11This a fun paper crafts for children that grown ups love too! Great results really fast, and you can make so many variations, my kinda craft. I first did these as an activity at my daughters ‘crafty’ 7th birthday party – they were a huge hit. And even better, after a few simple instructions the party goers were all able to make them independently. I have started to get a little more creative with them and made some with fancy stamens and different types of petals. Any tissue paper shape that can be threaded onto the pipe cleaner is worth trying!


If you want to make these then have a look at the free step by step tutorial. Or download the free PDF Worksheet on how to make these – PDF Worksheet – Tissue Paper Flowers.
Also for a bit of fun, a speedy demo – Speedy Tissue Paper Flower Demonstration Movie

This is great for spring – check out other spring craft ideas.

My original idea came from the excellent book by Klutz; Tissue Paper Flowers. It makes it really easy to follow and has lots of ideas for uses.

One of those paper crafts for children, and grown-ups too, that is useful to learn as it can be applied to all sorts of shapes that have a need to stand!
