Tissue Paper Flowers for Any Occasion

With Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation, and Cinco de Mayo all happening this week, these little tissue paper flowers are perfect to give. They’d make a great gift topper or would be fun placed in a vase filled with candies.

Supplies for Tissue Paper Flowers:

  • tissue paper
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • button
  • pipe cleaner

1. Cut out 6 small 2 inch circles.

2. Punch 2 small holes in the center of the circles. You can do this with a hole punch or with a pair of scissors (be careful if using scissors).

3. Thread your pipe cleaner through one hole of your 6 tissue paper circles and through one hole of your button. Then come back down through the other side of the holes.

4. Flatten the pipe cleaner stem to one side to make the flower pop out.

5. You can leave your circles flat for more of a poppy look or fluff and crunch them up for more of a posy look.

You’re done. Celebrate your next holiday with these cute paper flowers.

  1. This is going to be a great Mother’s Day craft idea for our children Sunday School class! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Every Mother’s day, my granddaughter and I spend the Saturday before making gifts for all the ladies in our family. I ran into a problem this year due to the fact she has a karate tournament 4 hours away from home which means travel on Friday and Saturday. This project is going to be a life saver. I am going to have everything ready so she can be working on making the flowers as we go down the road! She loves crafts of any kind but especially loves flowers! This is going to be so fun!

  3. These are so adorable! And I love that they are a cute, manageable size…what a cute card they would make. :)
