Tissue Paper Flower Cards – Materials:

Tissue paper in various colors
– Scissors
– Tape
Pipe cleaners
White cardstock
– Marker or paint sticks
– Washi or decorative tape


Step 1. Cut 6 squares of tissue paper (2 per color) as 7″ x 7″ squares.

Step 2. Fold accordion style (about 1″ height).

Step 3. Tie a pipe cleaner around the center and twist the pipe cleaner to make a stem.

Step 4. Fluff out out each tissue paper square starting from the innermost piece. Go gently as to not tear the paper.

Step 5. Use a small piece of tape to tape the sides of the outermost tissue papers together to form a rounded flower shape.

Step 6. Draw a vase on a letter size piece of cardstock. We love these paint sticks which are easy for little hands to draw with.

Step 7. Tape your tissue paper flower on the center. Write a sweet message on the back or front!
