Paper flower

Before I made tissue roses.
And someone wrote "Teach me how to make."

Tissue rose is easy to make.

Cut 16 rectangles of tissue paper.
Roll 2 corners of each sheet.
Tissue paper

Roll a sheet and twist the bottom. The rolled corner is outside.
The first petal

Wrap it softly with another.
Wrap

Repeat.
Tissue rose

Another paper flower, peony.
The paper must be thicker than tissue.

Fold 7-8 sheets of paper like an accordion.
(I used 4 sheets. More is gorgeous.)
Tie its middle with a rubber band.
Spread each sheet.

Fold paper
Tie the middle
Spread

You may cut the edge zigzag.
Notched

If you spray water color, it will be more beautiful.
