How To: Make a giant paper flower

Make a giant paper flower

This video takes us through how to create a paper flower. To begin you will need between 5 and 8 pages of colored tissue paper for each flower you want to create. There are multiple options for the paper so mixing and matching is definitely okay for this project. Next, you want to lay the paper one on top of the other so it creates a neat stack, the neater the stack the easier it will be to fold. Now fold the paper stack like you would to create a paper fan until you reach the end. You want to fold then flip the stack over and fold again, that's the fan method, and focus on keeping each fold neat and straight on its line. Next, fold it in half, and then unfold it and wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle of the stack. Gently unfold the petals and fan them out, and fluff out the petals to finish the flower. For more advance flowers you can add pipe cleaners to the middle before fluffing or mix to 2 pipe cleaner colors for the stem.
