Tissue Paper Posies

Make mom a sunny arrangement that will stay fresh forever.


  • 5-by-15-inch sheets of tissue paper
  • Pipe cleaners


  1. Step 1

    Layer 5-by-15-inch sheets of tissue paper, alternating colors. Make 1-inch-wide accordion folds.

  2. Step 2

    Wrap 1 end of a pipe cleaner around the center of the folded paper, and twist to secure. Round the edges of the folded paper with scissors.

  3. Step 3


    Fan out folds, and gently pull apart each layer of tissue paper to create petals.
