Instructions Print

Step 1
Take one sheet of tissue paper and fold it in half, then fold it in half again. Cut it down so that you have a 10" square.
Step 2
Starting at one edge, fold all the layers over about ½". Flip tissue over and fold it back on the other side. Continue to fold this way, alternating sides, so you have an accordion fold.
Step 3
Fold the accordion folded tissue in half. If desired, cut the ends rounded or in a point.  Wrap and secure a chenille stem around the stack with one end. The remaining chenille stem will be the stem for the flower.
Step 4
While holding your stem, gently open up the flower accordion. Start by gently pulling the top layer straight up towards the middle, while holding the other layers and gently pulling them down. Repeat with each layer until you have one half of the flower done. Repeat for the other half of the flower.
Step 5
Fluff the flower with your fingers once all of the tissue layers have been pulled up.
