This is Part 2 in our paper flower series. You can read Part 1 here.
Tissue paper flowers. You probably made them in school when you were a kid. All you needed was some tissue paper, pipe cleaners and a pair of scissors. With these items in hand, you could have made a field of flowers.
Though you still use those same supplies, I've got to tell you. Tissue paper flowers have come a long way. Just take a look at some of the pictures in this post.
Can you believe this beautiful boutonniere is made out of tissue paper? It's certainly not your granddaddy's boutonniere. It's elegant and unusual! It looks a whole lot harder than the ones I make at the shop though!
Love this mixed tissue paper flower arrangement. The decorative can enhances the centerpiece. If using this at an event, fill the can with sand, stones or pennies to help hold the blooms in place. Or you can create a grid on the top of the can with scotch tape.
Craft Stylish offers a tutorial on making the flowers above. The "sculpted" petals on these make them look less paper flowerish. If you know what I mean.
The next post in this series, will give you lots of links where you can learn how to make paper flowers. Can't wait for you to see it!
Which one of the tissue paper flowers is your favorite?
