Making Paper Flowers with Tissue Paper

I have meant to share this post with you about how to make paper flowers out of tissue paper. I have had this project done for over a month and I am just now getting around to getting this posted. We are just starting to warm up here in Ohio, so we don’t have any pretty blooms yet, so I decided I would make some.

I have seen a lot of posts on other blogs on how to make paper flowers, after reading a few posts I decided to use tissue paper in pink and white. I originally was going to use coffee filters and dye the tips with food coloring, but I will use the coffee filters for another project. I have that project in my head and will have to get working on that soon.

I started by using my 2 inch shaped cutter. I cut white and pink tissue paper with the cutter.

Next step was to take a pen and place in the middle of cut out tissue paper and wrap the paper around the pen.

Once you have all the pink flowers formed, place a small amount of hot glue on the tip of the pink flower and place in the center of the white cut out tissue paper and form a flower just like the pink paper.

I used some of the pink tissue paper to make small buds to make the branches look more realistic.

Once all your flowers and buds are complete, place a small amount of hot glue onto the bottom of the flower and glue onto the branches.

I love how realistic the flowers look.

I used jelly beans to fill the vase. I guess I will need to change out the jelly beans now that Easter is over. I have a feeling they are no longer fresh.

I placed them in the bay window hoping that my dogwood outside the window would start to bloom soon.

So what do you think? Do they look real?
