Once upon a time, Jord made this amazing wall of paper flowers out of crepe paper (the tutorial for making the paper flowers is here). Even though large sheets and rolls of crepe paper is easy to come by internationally, it is much less common in the States. Which means, we often get the question, “Can I make these flowers with tissue paper?”
Since we hadn’t tried it, we’d usually reply, “If you try it, will you let us know how it works out?” But I had the chance to make giant tissue paper flowers for Piper’s Favorite Things Party (lots… and lots… and LOTS of giant tissue paper flowers, in fact) and I am here to tell you all- it works! Tissue paper flowers = totally doable!
The original tutorial provides more than enough detailed information if you want to replicate this process, but I took some pictures along the way of how this looks with tissue paper as well.
Aren’t they so fun? I think a wall of these would be such a fun, whimsical addition to a wall in a little girls room (in a place that is less humid than Saipan- haha!).
Happy giant paper flower making, friends!
