paper flowers

i finally found the paper flowers craft instructions i've been looking for. why this was so difficult to find, i don't know. they were making them on the sprout "good night" show with nina and star the other night.

easy, peasy.

can't wait to try these. there's even a video you can watch explaining each step.

1. Place four sheets of tissue paper on top of each other – they should all be the same size, and rectangle-shaped.

2. Fold the sheets over about one inch, and then back about one inch. Fold the pages back and forth in the same motion as if making a paper fan.

3. Once the sheets have been folded, cut the edges to make them round.

4. Take a green pipe cleaner and fold it in half around the middle of the folded paper, and then twist it slightly around so it stays in place.

5. Gently lift each sheet of tissue paper up, one at a time, to make the petals of the flower.
