Beautiful toilet paper flowers!


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…




Guess what these are made of….


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!
