8 pieces of tissue paper, minimum 5″ X 5″ varied or same colors
Floral wire or pipe cleaner
Layer your tissue paper alternating colors as desired.
Fold the paper alternating back and forth. When you are done it should look like a fan.
Use the floral wire or pipe cleaner to attach the “stem”. Fold over the wire so there is a short end and a long end. Twist the short end around the long end.
Cut the ends of your flowers to a point. Do not forget to do this.
Carefully pull each layer up towards the center of the flower.
Ta-Da a beautiful Mexican paper flower!
