  DESCRIPTION     Layered tissue paper transformed into paper flowers  
  DETAILS     These flowers are the easiest of the two tissue paper flower projects, but they still require some advanced hand coordination to pull the petals into place. For younger children this might be frustrating.

Layer 4-6 sheets of tissue paper and cut into squares of approximately eight inches. Accordion fold until you have formed a thin rectangle. Round the edges on the narrow sides of the rectangles to form petals. At the center of the long side of the rectangle cut a small V on each side. Twist a pipe cleaner around the notches. Gently pull each layer of tissue paper into the center until you have formed a flower. You might want to add a touch of glue to the area where the petals separate so you donít have a gap. Optionally, make leaves from green crepe paper, gluing two together with a pipe cleaner or wire taped in between. Cover the extended leaf wires with green crepe paper. Glue at the ends. Wind the leaf wires around the stem.  Cover all the pipe cleaners with green crepe paper.  Glue at the end and your tissue paper flowers are complete.
