DIY MINI TISSUE FLOWERS


I made a few large tissue paper flowers for Cinco de Mayo last week and thought they would make adorable mini flower gift wrapping embellishments.  Perfect for adding a little color and cuteness to your Mother's Day gifts! 
Supplies:
Tissue Paper (3x3)
Stapler
Pick a few colors and stack them on top of each other with the color you would like for the center of the flower on top. I used 3 sheets of yellow, 4 of purple and 5 of the blue.
 Fold the stack accordion style.
Staple them together in the center.
 Spread the accordion-ness out and pull the layers of tissue paper up toward the center, one at a time.
 And you're done! Aren't they fun?
