Greedy For Colour: Tissue Paper and Tulle Flower Tutorial.
Well, here it is - a tutorial on how to make a tissue paper flower (with tulle). Good luck and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section if anything is unclear. First of all, assemble your stuff - tissue paper (2 colours if desired), tulle, string and scissors. Cut two rectangles of each colour and two rectangles of tulle. The flower I have made used 38cm x 25.5cm sheets but it doesn't really matter, just so long as the pieces are all rectangular and of the same size. Lay the six sheets on top of each other. Once the folding is complete, bend it in half like a fan and tie it tightly (so that it gathers) in the middle with string Snip the ends with scissors to make a petal shape. Fan out one side into a half circle. Then, delicately begin separating the layers, taking care not to ruin the pleats or tear the tissue paper (when this happens, don't cry... Continue separating and Unfurl the other side and continue in the same way, separating, lifting and zshoozshing. p.s.
