Paper flowers are such an easy creation you can make with tissue paper. They’re fun, vibrant and colorful – a great way to decorate for a party or room decor. If you need to purchase tissue paper, Nashville Wraps  is a great source with an array of colors. I’ve ordered many items from this company and they don’t disappoint! A 24 sheet tissue pack is $2.50, which works out to be about $1.25 per large flower. Martha Stewart sells the pom pom kit – if you would like to purchase the kit.  MG 4859 {DIY} Party Pom Poms
Here are easy step-by-step instructions to make giant paper flowers:
1 {DIY} Party Pom Poms
Step 1
Take 10 sheets of tissue paper – lay on a flat surface. I used 20″ x 30″ sheets. Starting at the short end, make a fold at least 1.5 inches wide. Simply fold accordion-style – flip tissue stack over and make another fold. Continue folding until you get to the end of the tissue. Make sure to press firmly creasing with each fold.

Step 2
Wrap a pipe cleaner (or florist wire) tightly around the center of your folded tissue.

Step 3
Make two cuts at the very end of the stack to make a point or round it – depending on the look you want. Repeat on the other end.

Step 4
Gently pull each piece of tissue towards the center of the flower, separate each tissue sheet from the others one at time. Fluff and fiddle with until the desired shape is found. These flowers are approximately 18″ in diameter.
