Face Tissue Flowers

Materials Required
Face Tissue - different colours
Glue (Fevicol)
Thin Aluminium wires
Green tape
Procedure : 
  1. At first, take the tissue paper and cut it equally into four strips.
  2. Now attach three of these strips to make a long strip.
  3. Fold this long strip equally making it to about one fourth of its full length.
  4. Using a scissors, cut its edges and later unfold the strip of tissue.
  5. Take the aluminium wire and fold its edge.
  6. Dip its edge in glue.
  7. Slowly wind the tissue paper around the wire. As you wind, crush the paper (at the folding edge) for a filling look, at small intervals until you wind the whole strip.
  8. Now tighten the same aluminium wire or thread around the flower for support and to prevent from falling off.
  9. Wind the green tape around the wire to make the stem.
Your flower is ready. Arrange with fresh ferns for an attractive look.
Another Method with Tissue or organdi cloth material :
Materials Required :
  • Tissue paper or organdi cloth
  • Green thread
  • Green tape
  • Aluminium wire
Cut out 7 to 8 round pieces (5cm diameter) from the organdi cloth. Fold the circles twice to make a cone shape and cut the round edges finely. Open out the circles. Cut out two long strands of thin wire. Fold one circle pieces and wind a long strand of wire at the end. Take one more circle and do the same. Keep both together and plait the two wires together. Wind the green tape around the wires (stem). Make a pin hole at the centre of the rest of the circles and insert this one by one through the wire from below. Tie it with a green thread to keep it in place.
