First off, I don't really follow centimeters as well as I do inches, so get 8 sheets of 24" x 20" tissue paper (those are the standard measurements for tissue paper). I figured instead of using colored tissue paper and forcing you guys to remember which were on top and which were on bottom, I numbered the sheets 1 through 8 - 1 is on top and 8 is on the bottom.
Next, fold about 2" on the shorter side so the bottom sheet (#8) is now showing
But I decided to keep with the original post and cut the same way she did - definitely have a good pair of scissors on hand, though, as you'll be cutting through a lot of sheets at once!
And voila! You're done! Now this thing is pretty big... to get a sense as to how large a flower it is, I've put my husband's bike helmet next to it. It's twice the size of a helmet.
But if you flip it upside-down, you'll be able to see the excess string (on the #1 side) and can tie it up, if you so choose!
TOTAL COSTS: $2.95
$2.95 for white tissue paper from Vons
String and scissors were already on hand
TOTAL AMOUNT OF TIME: 15 minutes
You could probably do it in less time since I was trying to take photos, find my scissors, etc.
EASY-PEASY SCALE (1 super easy - 5 very difficult): 1 out of 5
This is a very easy project and one that could turn out beautiful results, depending on the colors you choose, the sizes, and the petal cuts.
