Step 2: Select and Stack
-These flowers are all about so choose a combination that suits your event. You can use bright, contrasting colors for a particularly festive look (pic 2), or soft, related colors for a pretty, natural effect. (pic 1)
-Stack the paper neatly.
-The color that you want as the center of your flower should be on top.
-Likewise, the color on the bottom will be the back of the flower. I usually make this layer green to look like leaves.
Note: Using whole sheets of paper makes a fairly large flower. If you would like to create smaller flowers, You can cut your stack in half, lengthwise. (pic 2)
Step 3: Fold
-With your stack in portrait position , take the bottom, short side of your stack and fold it up, about an inch. (pic 2)
-Flip your stack over, take your preexisting fold, and fold it upwards another inch.
-Flip the stack again, fold and repeat until your stack is a one inch strip. (pic 3)
Don't Worry, folding tissue paper is not an exact science, so don't worry if your folds aren't completely parallel or exactly an inch.
