Step 1: Video Part 1

I have used brown tissue paper in the video, but for the flowers shown in the picture, I have used 5 white tissue papers and 2 yellow tissue papers.

There are two kind of appearances the petals can have:

  1. The one shown in the video - shaping the edges of the fan structure into v-shape (shown in video).
  2. Not shaping the edges, leaving the fan structure as such - with flat edges

For my white and yellow tissue flowers, I have used flat edges (method 2).

Step 2: Video Part 2 - Flower Completion

This video shows how to complete the flower.

Step 3: Final Placing

Please let me know if the video is not clear, I will try to create a new one. The video shows the use of brown tissue paper, thats what i used initially. Then I found white and yellow tissue paper and went with those. Thats why I could not record the video of that.

I created a bunch of 5 in about 15 minutes. Very easy and beautiful job.

Please vote for me, if you like these flowers :) Thanks! Hope you enjoy making these.
