How to Make Tissue Paper Carnations

How to Make Tissue Paper Carnations

These lovely tissue paper carnations from Folding Trees aren't so much folded as scrunched, which makes them super easy to make! To whip up a bouquet of your own you'll need to assemble the following:

  • tissue paper
  • suitably-sized (approximately 3" round) container lid to use as a template
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • 2 large paper clips (the butterfly types)
  • chenille stems (aka pipe cleaners) or floral wire
  • colored marking pen/s 
  • floral wire, floral tape & wire cutter, all optional

For the entire tutorial, scamper on over to this post on Folding Trees.
