Materials:

- Assorted colored tissue paper
- Green pipe cleaners
- Scissors

Instructions:

1. Cut your tissue paper into 10 inch squares. Used for this tutorial: 2 squares pale green and 4 squares spring green.
2. Stack tissue paper squares and fold accordion-style. {1½ inch fold was used}.
3. Wrap a pipe cleaner around the center of the folded paper and twist to secure. Just make sure your top/interior petal colors are facing up.
4. Cut edges as desired. For the green flower, I did rounded edges and then made 1 inch slits toward the center. (See my notes following the tutorial for instructions on how to make other flowers.)
5. Unfold one side of the flower and carefully separate the layers of paper.
6. Repeat on the other side and fluff the petals to fill in any empty spots.
7. Display in a vase or wrap a bunch of stems together to make a bouquet.
