Tissue-Paper Flowers

A while back I saw a tutorial on how to make tissue-paper flowers at Folding Trees.  I thought some sort of craft flower would look better than my silk flowers.  So last night for craft night my friend Genevieve and I decided to give them a try.

I think they turned out pretty well. We basically followed the steps from the website except Genevieve came up with the idea to make scalloped edges.  I think the scalloped edges made a big difference in the overall appearance.  They ended up looking like peonies to me, my new favorite flower of the moment!  So here are a few pictures.

The following arrangement I put on the coral-colored cabinet from last week, which fittingly, the paint color was called "peony".

I love how these flowers look:

I went a little tissue-paper happy and also made a couple for a small bud vase in our bedroom:

And a large cream-colored flower with a couple fuchsia ones for the living room:

I told you I went tissue-paper flower crazy but they were so fun to make!

I make these and use them as bows on presents also wrapped in tissue paper. They are a big hit especially at little girls birthday parties.

That's a great idea, I'll have to do that!
