- Stack at least 6 sheets of tissue paper.
- Fold accordion style in 1-inch pleats lengthwise.
- Tie string around the middle of the tissue strip.
- Cut ends of the strip. Rounded edges will make round petals, and pointed edges will make pointy petals.
- To open the flower, gently pull layers of tissue toward the center, one at a time.
More options: For a hanging flower, use a long ribbon in place of string. To add a stem, use a pipe cleaner in place of the string.
