Tissue Paper Spiral Flower Tutorial

Woohoo Wednesday
Tissue Paper Spiral Flower Tutorial


I have a little tutorial to show you how to reuse that tissue paper leftover from gifts.

My tutorial today will show you using white tissue paper many of us have, and how to add color to get a fun effect. I have made projects using colored tissue paper for a brighter embellishment.

So first gather your supplies you will need…
You will need:
Tissue Paper
Scrap card stock
1 inch hole punch
Glue
Embellishments
A misting spray (i.e. Tattered Angels, Mr. Huey’s etc)
A box (not pictured)

To start take your tissue paper and cut strips about 12 inches by 1 inch and layer them and fold in half. *This step is optional, but I like mine wrinkly, so I balled mine up and then lay flat again.

Take the stack of tissue paper and twist.
Do this all the way to the end.
Next is the fun part!!!  Take your twisted tissue paper and place in a box. (I have used an old shoe box)


Mist the tissue paper till you get the desired color.
Starting at one end take your twisted misted tissue paper and roll in a spiral.
Take a one inch circle punch and your scrap cardstock and punch out your circles to glue your flower to for stability.
Next your flowers are ready for embellishing.
The only additional step I have taken is to die-cut some leaves which I have misted with a light green.
A Close Up! 
Hope you will give these a try to embellish your next papercrafting projects! Drop me a comment if you do, I would love to see your creations.
Have a great one! I will be back tomorrow with some sneak peeks for the July Inspired By Stamping release.

I am personally adding this to the Playing in Paradise - Wedding/Anniversary challenge.
