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 recipe...you 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
-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!
