Tissue Flowers

I can't wait to try making these! I read through most of the comments and want to try alternating the tissue paper in colour -- like, pink, white, pink, white -- to see how that would turn out.

Finished look

One commenter said she made them in the 60s out of kleenex for her wedding!

Up close and personal

Get the How-To on zakka life. It's easy and the finished product is just stunning! You could make these for the wedding getaway car, for a bridal or baby shower, or attach to floral stems and keep them in a vase year-round. Happy crafting!

  2. I purchased a Martha Stewart, step-by-step tissue flower making kit from Walmart for doing this exact same thing...only thing is that they're for large-scale flowers - 1 foot diameter. You can hang these babies from the ceiling in varying heights or use them in gigantic bouquets.

    Instead of small pieces of tissue paper, use full-sized sheets and follow the same folding and cutting process as you would for the mini flowers.

    For a different effect, change the shape of the flower tips - instead of rounded tips, cut pointed tips.
