DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

Northwest Pearls: DIY Tissue Paper Flowers For the wedding I was apart of last week, we made tissue paper flowers for the head table.

The bride, A, bought three packs of colored tissue paper from Michael's. She found this tutorial on Pinterest from Hey, Let's Make Stuff and we followed it to make the flowers.

It didn't take long to get the hang of making the flowers. We made around 18 flowers that were then sewn onto a ribbon to span the length of the head table. Of the four possible petal styles that the original tutorial explained, we created the first two, the rounded one, and the shredded one. There was two of each color in each grouping on the table and we had one of each of those be one of those two petal styles. The only grouping of three was the white flowers in the center. They were arranged from dark blue at the outer ends of the table to white at the center in front of the bride and groom.

Sadly I don't have a picture of the final arrangement on the head table, but here's what the flowers looked like after we created them. The satin ribbon you see is what the flowers ended up being sewn onto.
