Our latest diy project was inspired by the Lunefuld Dress’ whimsical flowers. Create bouquets for pennies rather than benjamins.
DIY tissue paper flowers
-thin cardboard (we used a file folder)
-green pipe cleaners
-rainbow variety of tissue paper
Step 1: Start drawing flower petal shapes onto thin cardboard. Download our flower petal template or draw some free hand designs of your own.
Step 2: Cut out flower petals from cardboard and start tracing the shapes onto tissue paper.
*Tip: Fold the tissue paper into quarters to trace once but get 4 times as many petals.
Trace petals onto issue paper. Repeat, repeat, repeat.
Step 3: Cut out the flower petals. The more petals the better!

Step 4: Lay them out and start stacking your petals. The biggest petal will be the first one you poke onto the pipe cleaner.
Biggest petals on the bottom and smallest on top.
Step 5: Poke your petals onto the pipe cleaner. Push only about 1/8 down the pipe cleaner, then fold the top 1/2 inch down to form a nub, so the flower petals can’t escape.
Fold the pipe cleaner down like so.
Step 6: After all desired petals are safely secured onto your pipe cleaner, gather the petals into a cone shape with your hands to create a ‘blooming’ look.

Once you start it’s hard to not get carried away.
