Make It Monday - Valentine's Day Tissue-Paper Flowers

*This post contains affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details.

Hello and welcome to my new link up Make It Monday! If you or your children made something awesome recently link it up. It can be a Lego creation, a beautiful masterpiece, a creative craft or a delicious get the point! If it is something you made and created with your own two hands you can link it up.

Today I have a super easy and inexpensive craft to share with you. These lovely tissue-paper flowers make a terrific Valentines bouquet, a pretty corsage, an adorable flower ring and even a tasty treat holder. I bought all of the supplies at Dollar Tree.


3 Simple Materials:
-Assorted colors of tissue paper
-Pipe cleaners
-Candy if you are making treat holders

3 Simple Instructions:
1) Cut 4 pieces of tissue-paper into squares. Size just depends on how big you want them to be. We made most of our large ones (with the exception of the ring) about 5-6 inches squared.
2) Put them in a pile and fold it like an accordion.
3) Tie the center with a pipe cleaner and then very gently pull each piece of paper apart into flower shape.

**If you want to make a tasty treat holder just glue a piece of candy or use a pipe cleaner to tie a piece of candy to the center of the flower. For the ring follow the instructions above but make the flower smaller flower and then make a ring out of the pipe cleaner to fit your finger. For some added fun you can even spritz the flowers with perfume to make them smell good!
