Tissue paper flower

Hello, In my previous Blog post I shared some ideas for wrapping Christmas presents, but today I wanted to show you how to make these really simple and easy flowers to liven up any gift...

You will need:
tissues paper
elastic band or lunch bag tie
cello tape
mini stapler

Start by cutting out the tissue paper in to rectangles. Try out different sizes until your happy make sure you have about 6 to 8 sheets together.
Next fold the sheets altogether as if you were making a fan. One side, fold, flip, the other side, fold, flip etc.
Then use the elastic band or lunch tie to hold the middle.
Pull one side of the tissue to the other side and staple once, like so...

Pull one or two sheets of tissue up to create a crinkled effect. Do this until you have a voluptuous tissue flower.
I hope you had a great day!
