First, unfold two to four tissues and stack them on top of each other. Fold the stack accordion style, and put a bobby pin in the center to keep the folds together.
Carefully tear off the short ends of the tissue stack. Tear off as much material as you want to create the desired size flower. Use markers to color the rough ends of the tissue.
Gently pull apart each layer of tissue, from the ends of the stack to the bobby pin in the center. Pull apart all of the layers on one side. Repeat the process on other side. Fluff the layers to create the desired shape.
If you want to make a bouquet of flowers, find material for the stems. You can use pipe cleaners or the stems from artificial flowers. Use the floral tape to join the bobby pin to the stem. Wrap until it is secure. If you do not want stems on your flowers, use the bobby pins to attach them to hair, clothing or fabric.
