This is actually a project I did for work, but am definitely planning on using for future parties and gift wrapping.
The Tissue Paper Flower Tutorial
What you'll need:
Lot's of tissue paper
Stapler (ideally one with a long reach)
1. Stack your tissue paper at least 8 layers thick. More than 8 is ideal - but 8 will work. Most of mine were between 10 and 12 layers. Make sure you cut the stack of paper to a square (roughly) This will give you a rounder flower (vs. an oblong flower)
2. Staple the stack in the middle and free draw a round flower shape with petals
3. Cut out the flower shape
4. Fluff each layer one at a time. I found that squeezing and scrunching each layer as I went made it stay better and look "fluffier"
5. When you get to the bottom layer - you're done! Just fluff a bit more until you're happy with it.
