Tissue Roses


Perhaps one of the most common Pavee crafts and I see that Paveepride/Paul already mentioned them. Thankfully their very easy to create, costing little and can be encorporated into so many things.

Gather together:

Tissues
Pipe cleaners
Scissors

Method:

Step 1: Take a single tissue and spread it out flat in front of you. The long sides of the tissue should be on the top and bottom, the short sides on the right and left.
Step 2: Fold about half an inch of the bottom of the tissue up. Then fan-fold the next half inch to the back. Keep fan-folding the tissue until it is completely folded.
Step 3: Once you have the tissue folded into what looks like a long strip, fold it again, this time matching the short ends to each other -- it will have a single bend in the centre.

Step 4: Take a twelve inch piece of wire and tightly bind the centre of the strip.
Step 5: Cut the folded end. Begin to peel the layers of tissue, opening the flower to form a fluffy, round blossom.
Step 6: Wrap the very bottom of the flower (where the wire holds the tissue) and the wire a separate thin strand of tissue.
