Thursday's Tutorial from Kim !!

Hi everyone! Kim here to share with you another tutorial for quick and easy flowers using scrap pieces of gift wrap tissue paper. If you're like me, you may have plenty of tissue paper leftover from gift wrapping. If so, these quick and easy spiral flowers are a cinch to create and will use up some of that tissue paper you may have been holding on to!

So let's get started!

Tissue paper
Scrap Paper
Glimmer Mist (optional)
Bling (optional)

Step 1. Take one sheet of tissue paper and fold into three of four layers. Cut the layers into strips approximately 1" wide. Measurements do not have to be exact - just eyeball it.

Step 2. Twist each stack of layered tissue paper. Spray with Glimmer Mist (optional way to color white tissue paper).

Step 3. Roll each piece into a spiral.

Step 4. Punch out 1" circles and glue onto the back of the spiral tissue paper to provide support.

Step 5. Cut tissue paper into the shape of leaves. Spray with Glimmer Mist and adhere to back of spiral flower. Add a piece of bling to the center of the flower.

Now your flower is ready to embellish any of your papercraft creations! I hope you have fun creating your own version of these little flowers! If you create one, I'd love to see it. You can stop by my blog to share what you've created.

Link up between now and Sunday evening, 9pm (Eastern, US) for a chance at our weekly and monthly prizes !!
