Beautiful toilet paper flowers!

Standard

It started with tissue paper, then it progressed to Kleenex, now I have resorted to using toilet paper! I feel like I am going down hill… What’s next? What else can I make a flower out of? But, these turn out so nice every time, I just can’t stop myself…see for yourself!
This flower is made out of four sheets of toilet paper and a twist tie!

Here’s how to do it…
Start with four sheets. I used three ply toilet paper with a sort of quilted pattern… But hey, what ever kind you use is up to you!

Fold like a zig zag or accordion and use the twist tie to pinch tightly in the middle

I like the look of a little texture on the petals, so I cut a little scallop on the edges…

Then, pull the layers apart carefully, trying not to rip the sheets…

Standard

So, my post on tissue paper flowers has been so popular that I thought why not try it with other materials? So I tried it with Kleenex!
Look at how beautiful the flowers turned out…

I took four sheets of Kleenex and a twist tie…

I folded them into a zig zag fold and tied it in the middle with a twist tie…

Then, I decided to cut the edges a little to make a scallop…

Then, all you need to do is separate the layers, I used three ply Kleenex, so I could even carefully separate those layers too…

Then, do the same with the other side and fluff up!
They will make fantastic decorations, I bet they will also make fantastic dusters when you are done with them!
