If you want year round flowers that don’t wither away then these are the perfect alternative to bring some flower power into your home, of course there’s nothing like the freshness of sweet-smelling flowers but these still shout out SPRING to me!
- White tissue gift paper
- Craft wire
- Paper clips
- Felt tips
- Scissors and a ruler
- Vase or glass jar
To create these tissue paper carnations I used the same folding and cutting method as the Tissue Pom Pom’s (post up soon)
Cut your tissue paper sheets into squares, I used 10 layers at approximately 10 x 10 cm ,( the larger the square the larger the flower, vice versa) and accordion fold as below.
Fold in half and secure with a paper clip
Shape by snipping off both ends
I noticed some areas were missed so I perfected them along as I pulled the sheets up (next step)
