Making Kleenex Flowers- Class Craft – YouTube
Diy Tissue (Kleenex) Flowers

  • Tissues (as in Kleenex, not tissue paper) – 3 sheets for each flower – use 3 ply for extra fluffy flowers
  • Bobby pins to hold the center together (or twist ties or pipe cleaners or a piece of yarn or any kind of wire or even a staple)
  • Markers (only have a black one? That’s okay, too.)
  • Scissors
  • Tape

*Accordion Fold How To:

  • Start with your green or other color paper strip (about 3-4 inches wide x 9-10)
  • PULL THE RED SLIDER to the right, to 0:26 and watch until 0:34 for this “Fold-Flip-Fold” technique: Accordion fold paperfish – YouTube


Green or other color paper strip (about 3-4 inches wide x 9-10 inches long) you will roll up, from one corner (see below)

(or use a drinking straw! or a chopstick! or a pipe cleaner or a twig!
or a “soft wire tie” – from a hardware store or a wooden dowel or a cut a section of a coat hanger).
