Materials: 12 sheets of 13×20 tissue paper (per flower) cut with scalloped edges, floral wire and fabric or paper leaves.
Stack the twelve sheets of tissue paper together and fold the paper accordion-style, placing the fold at the valley of each scallop. Crease with each fold. (If you use traditional tissue paper, you can create a scallop by cutting a rounded edge after folding).
Gather folded tissue paper. Fold floral wire in half and slip wire over center of folded tissues; twist tightly.
Separate and fluff each layer of tissue paper, pulling to the center of one side only. (It should have a flat back.) Leave a small pocket of space in the middle as the center of each flower.
Group tissue paper flowers together in an arrangement, and add leaves for an instant bloom of happiness!
