Tissue Paper Flowers and Orange

Project::Tissue Paper Flowers

Kate received this paper flower kit for her birthday back in November.  Because the girls' birthdays are close to Christmas, I often put a few gifts aside for a rainy day.  We pulled the flower kit out a couple weeks ago and they have been making tissue paper flowers almost non-stop.



They are so easy and fun for kids of all ages (yeah, I like making them, too).  They would make great party decorations.  Actually, we made some red and blue ones for the Fourth of July, but they got ruined in the rain before I had a chance to take a photo.


Color week::Orange


The girls made my parents each a flower when they came to visit last week.  My mom wound hers around the handle of her new orange bag.  Jane and Kate really liked that.

Sweet flowers. I have an unused MS paper flower kit sitting in my studio closet...I keep thinking one of these days I'll use it. =)

I think Martha still has that tutorial up for making the tissue pom poms. I bet they would enjoy that too.

This takes me back - I used to love making paper flowers as a kid.

I'm so coveting your mom's bag. Looks like it's a Tod's? Very nice!


OH, I remember making tissue paper flowers as child with my mom & sister...I was at a fair and won a HUGE tissue paper flower--it was bigger than I was at the time, I was 7, and it was bright pink and green...happy memories seeing your flowers here. Glad you had a super 4th! Happy Weekend to you & yours! :o)


Oh I LOVE those paper flowers and remember making them as child. How fun. We have been meaning to get that kit. xoxo


I made these with my students around Mother's Day - they loved the results and I love the simplicity. Such a pretty way to spice up a corner (or your handbag)!


so adorable! i love how they just can' stop making them... *explosive*
Show them this, it'll blow their pompom minds!

Lovely -- even the soggy ones! Good idea to save some presents from that crazy time of year for the quieter times. Oh, and thanks for the fat quarters tip!
