These tissue paper flowers are beautiful, and easy to make. The activity is best suited to older children, but some under 10s may enjoy making them.

Method

First trace your circles. On folded tissue paper. Ours was folded to created 16 sheets, but try and make sure you use a minimum of 10.

We used the lip of the vase we were using to display them. It was about 5-6cm. This creates a nice dainty flower, you can always go bigger depending on how your're displaying them.

Cut out your circles, making sure you keep the tissue paper lined up. Using clips or bobby pins can help keep it in shape.

Now use a marker, and colour the edge of the tissue paper. Most markers will 'bleed' a little, this can actually give a nice natural look. The clips will help while you do this as well.

Use something sharp to pierce two holes near the centre of the circle. Thread the pipe cleaner through one of the holes, and then thread a small piece back through the other one.

Twist the two bits of pipe cleaner around each other.

Start scrunching up the tissue paper, one layer at a time. Begin by pinching the first piece near the stem.

Once you've finished each layer, fluff them up till you're happy with the flower.

Trim the ends off the pipe cleaners so they're the length you want. Put them in a small vase or glass, and put a smile on someone's face.
