Tissue paper flower gift topper

You know me. I love gift wrap! Probably more so than the present itself. I came up with this tissue paper flower gift topper as an fun way to add a dash of whimsy to a gift and it’s super easy. It’s based on paper poms, so if you know how to make those, you’re good to go!

Materials: tissue paper in two colors (tone on tone), scrapbook paper in green, stapler, scissors, glue stick

  1. Cut a piece of tissue paper 6″ wide and about 18″ long (depends on how large you’d like it)
  2. Cut another piece of tissue paper about 2″ wide and 18″ long. This will be the center of your flower.
  3. Do an accordion fold up the tissue paper, about 3/4″ wide.
  4. Fold the accordion folded paper in half.
  5. Staple the center of the fold.
  6. Cut a point at each edge of the paper.
  7. Glue the two ends of the paper together and fan out the blossom so that it spreads evenly around.
  8. Cut out leaves from the green paper and fold down the center.
  9. Glue the topper to the gift and glue the paper leaves underneath.
