Mini Tissue Paper Flowers Tutorial

How to make mini tissue paper flowers with a flower paper punch: Grow Creative

Don't you love getting new craft tools?!  I spent most of my birthday money this year at the craft stores on some fun stuff........like a 3 1/2 inch scallop flower paper punch.  It's awesome and it's inspiring all kinds of crafty projects for spring!

Easy Mini Tissue Paper Flower Tutorial:

Materials:
Large flower or scallop paper punch
Tissue Paper
Stapler

Instructions:
1. Fold one piece of tissue paper in half, then in half again two more times so that you end up with 8 thicknesses of paper.
2.  Along the folded edge, slide the paper into your punch all the way back and press down firmly to cut out some flower shapes.
3.  With all 8 tissue flower shapes in a neat pile, staple them together a couple of times in the center.
4.  Scrunch each layer of tissue from the center out to create a ruffled flower.

I just happened to have some poppies in a vase that these tissue paper flowers look perfect with.  I'm loving these colors together!  Happy Spring!

  3. These are so cute. Simple enough I'm going to try them with my little 6 year old grandaughter who is here today. I don't have the punch but I think I will just cut circles--maybe with pinking shears. Thanks!!
