Tissue Paper Flowers

You know those paper tissue paper flowers we would make as children? I revisited them recently and was incredibly (and pleasantly) surprised. I am a tissue paper collector and just combined patterns I thought would be pretty together.

What's great about these as a DIY flower is that they are abundant. A lot of the fabric and paper flowers that I make are detail in focus and actually don't take up much *space.* Really abundant feeling flower arrangements do the opposite. The tissue paper flower is full and expansive. It also isn't horribly intimidating, which is great when you're asking your friends to help.

Great places to find tissue paper. For individual: Paper Source & The Container Store. For bulk: All Express, Bags & Bow : Gold Stripe upper left, Red Damask, Mimosa, Black and White dots.
