Are you in need of something spontaneous and romantic for your valentine's lover? maybe you want to give flowers to your teacher/friend, and roses seem too romantic. well have I got the thing for you! Join me in the process of hand making tissue paper carnations.
Step 1: Gather your supplies
- A gluestick (It's easier to work with than tape or bottled glue, but you can use them as substitutes.)
- Red and white tissue paper ( you may want to use other colors, but you'll need a LOT of one. you'll see why later.)
- Floral tape and wire (consult your local florist, if you are confused.)
Step 2: Preparing the flower
Step 3: Shaping the future... petals
then repeat step 2 with your now oval-ish stack of paper. (folding in half) Rotate 45 degress and repeat again. this will give a basic outline for the bending of the paper later, thus giving your flower some uniformity, but only enough to ease our work load.
