These tissue paper flowers are lovely and exuberant, surprisingly easy to make, and infinitely customizable. I think I was taught how to make them in elementary school, but I had completely forgotten about them until a few years ago when I was getting ready for a party. After a few misfires, I got the hang of it again. 

Step 1: Materials

6 Sheets tissue paper
1 Pipe cleaner

Great tutorial, thank you!
How many flowers can you made with 6 sheets ? thanks
Thanks you :) this are perfect for 5 de Mayo :) TYSM great job
Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for. I can't wait to start this project.
I made some with toile fabric - creamy white with pale blue drawings - it was beautiful-very french looking. My granddaughter picked some batik and a sweet pink floral flannel fabric and those came out great too! It is a little more difficult to cut the ends, but can be done with patience.
Really pretty! And a very well written intructable! Thanks for sharing. <br>
