4 days til Christmas


  • Pastel colored tissue paper
  • ribbon 
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

How to make it:

  1. Cut tissue paper into rectangles of desired size -we cut the tissue paper into the three folds
  2. Stack around 4-5 pieces of tissue paper. Use the same color or different colors. If you want to use a smaller number of pieces of tissue paper, flower will not be as full.
  3. Accordion pleat the tissue paper working from the long side.
  4. tie the ribbon around the middle of the accordion pleated tissue paper and knot
  5. Trim the ends of each side to give the pedals a unique look. Trimming the ends into a point (like a triangle), or a bump (like a half circle) will look very pretty.
  6. Gently separate each layer  pulling upwards toward the middle of the flower.  Do the second side.
