How to make paper flowers

Create a pretty party decoration

tissue paper flowers - How to make paper flowers - Home makes - Craft -

Tissue-paper flowers make striking decorations for a summer party.

Use a sheet of paper for each flower. Fold it in half then half again, then fold it concertinawise in 5cm-wide folds to measure 25cm x 5cm.

Fold it in half again and cut into petal shapes (as shown below). Cut just inside the folded edges to give separate petals.

Take the petals in pairs and scrunch up the centres. Lay on top of one another at slight angles to form a good flower shape.

Tie securely around the centre with strong thread, leaving a long length for hanging up. Rearrange the petals, if necessary.
