DIY Tissue paper flowers
The flowers on this page are samples; you’ll find them imperfectly so. Generally, I make them quickly; take a picture with my phone; critique and observe them; and revisit them at a later date.
At least half a dozen of the featured paper flowers were created by gathering connected petals and rolling them unto a stem or mounting them to a separate base. For most of the others, I folded the tissue accordion style and secured it in the centre with pipe cleaners. I don’t always use folds though. Sometimes, I use my thumb and my middle finger to gather the tissue at centre point and secure it with a pipe cleaner or wire.
Tissue paper flowers are among the easiest paper flowers to make. There are varied ways to make them and some methods are distinctively called Tissue paper flowers for kids. That’s because elements used to assemble the flowers are usually child-friendly and require less adult supervision.

The flowers directly below the text are small compared to the giant tissue paper flowers on this page. Their actual sizes are about 2 1/2” in diameter; that makes them smaller. They were constructed using the rolled tissue paper flowers method.

Chalk it up to gathers and Pipe Cleaners
The flowers below were created with white tissue paper. I need pale blue tissue on the spot. So, I coloured the sheets of tissue paper with chalk and followed the gathering and securing with pipe cleaner method. I hope you are now inspired to create some coloured tissue.
