Birthday Party / Paper Flowers

Hi!

Make Paper FlowersOur birthday celebration is almost over, but we still have a couple great posts left for you to enjoy! Today’s post goes along with our archway craft in the July/August issue, so you can make paper flowers like we did to decorate the top. You can also use them to decorate other parts of your doll’s party; they would look great strung in a banner in her room as well! They are super easy (promise!) and can be made in less than ten minutes. Let’s get started…

SuppliesYOU WILL NEED…

  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Pipe cleaners.

Collage

  1. Start by cutting at least five pieces of tissue paper into equal sized rectangles (Our pieces were about 5 by 8 inches, but you can experiment with sizes).
  2. Fold the tissue paper together like an accordion or fan. Secure by looping a pipe cleaner around the folded paper and twisting the ends together.
  3. Cut both ends of the tissue paper rectangle in a rounded shape.
  4. Spread out the folded tissue paper and began to separate the tissue paper layers.
  5. Gently pull the top layer of tissue paper up and crinkle the two sides together so they form one ring of the flower.
  6. Keep doing this until you’ve formed the shape of each tissue paper layer.

Given how simple these are to make, we have little doubt that you could whip up a whole “bouquet” of these in no time! If you create flowers of your own, feel free to send us pictures of the results at dollmagblog[at]gmail[dot]com.
