Making Tissue Paper Puffy Flowers - one puffy tissue paper flowerI love using tissue paper to make flowers. They make fabulous decorations, and are great for sprucing up gift bags and presents. For these flowers, we will use a small Styrofoam ball or ping pong ball to puff the flower petals to give them a beautiful round dimension. The flower pistils are made by simply twisting some tissue paper into thin strips.

Supplies:

  • tissue paper, 2 colours
  • scissors
  • small Styrofoam ball or ping pong ball
  • glue stick
  • thin bendable wire
