Make It: Tissue Paper Flower Favors Tutorial

I love these tissue flowers from Martha Stewart, but I wanted to give them a bright summer spin.  I think these will be the perfect party favors for a colorful wedding or wedding shower.  They are easy and quite addictive to make.

Summer Tissue Paper Flower Favors Tutorial

1) Supplies needed:  Tissue paper, Martha Stewart template, pencil, scissors, ribbon.  2) Fold two sheets of tissue paper into 4ths and trace the template at the corner fold.  3) Cut the flower shape from the tissue.  4) Open the flower.  5) Rotate the top sheet of tissue so that the petals sit staggered.  6) Choose your center color and wrap your favor it in.  Place your wrapped favor in the center of the flower, and fold up the edges.  7) Tie a ribbon around the base.  8)  Fluff out the petals to create a pretty flower.

I loved playing with the colored paper to create different flowers.  I used yellow petals and a black center for a black-eyed Susan, white petals and a yellow center for a daisy, and blue with a yellow center.  So many pretty combinations!

Happy flower making, DIY’ers!
