Who knew you can make cute little paper tulips from simple square pieces of paper? This is a simple craft tutorial that even children can handle and enjoy.  You’ll have a bouquet made up in no time at all.

 

Display these paper tulips in a vase, embellish a gift package, or write a fun little note on the leaf.

One of my most favorite ideas is to use them as name tags in a spring luncheon place setting. So cute!

FLOWER INSTRUCTIONS

Cut out paper 5 x 5 inches/12.5 cm

Fold in half and crease the paper. Open up and fold in half again. Crease the paper.

Open up and apply 1 ½ inch/3.5 cm strips of tape just to the right of each fold, (about ¾ inch/2cm from the edge of paper).

Pinch all four creases to form a little cup.

Round off the side angles by trimming with scissors.

Take the wire and bend one end over about ½ inch/1 cm.

Apply one or two drops of craft glue inside the bottom center of the flower.

Poke the unbent end of the wire into the center of the tulip and pull it down until the bent end is secure inside the base of the flower. Pinch to secure it in place.

 

PAPER TULIP LEAF INSTRUCTIONS

Fold a green sheet of paper over about 2 inches/5cm, and using the provided template trace around the leaf. (PLACE TEMPLATE ON FOLD WHERE INDICATED).

Cut out as many leaves as you need.

If you want to write a little note or name on the leaf, do it now before gluing it to the stem.

Open up the leaf and apply glue. (I prefer using a glue stick).

Place the stem along the inside of the crease of the leaf and fold leaf onto itself to close.

Ta-dah! Now continue to make up as many tulips as you wish.

    Tissue Paper Blossoms | Quick & Simple Craft

    These DIY tissue paper blossoms are the cutest thing ever! It’s a quick & simple craft project that even the little ones can help make.

    Bring a splash of spring color into your home or office with these beautiful little tissue paper blossoms.

    WATCH THE VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW

    TISSUE PAPER BLOSSOMS MATERIALS & ITEMS NEEDED:

    • Tissue paper (Shades of pink or white)
    • Paper scissors
    • Hot glue gun/craft glue
    • Thin branches
    • Pruners
    • Vase or jar to put them in

    INSTRUCTIONS

    You can use all shades of pink or white sheets of tissue paper.

    Go out into your yard and cut 5-6 small, thin branches. If you don’t have bushes or trees in your yard, ask your neighbor if they have a few branches to spare. (Most likely they’d love for you to prune their fruit trees or bushes).

     

    Cut tissue paper into 2 inch/5cm strips.

    Fold the strip in half horizontally and cut small scallops about every inch/2.5 cm. Cut about ¾ of the way down the paper.

    Open the strip up and cut to separate every 5 or so blossoms.

    Before separating sheets of paper, curl the petals. To curl the petals, use a closed pair of scissors, just like you would to curl gift wrapping ribbon.

    Take one of the petal sheets and start rolling and gathering the bottom of the paper.

    When finished, twist the bottom of the blossom tightly.

    Set aside and repeat the process as many times until you have as many blossoms as you would like.

     

    Using a glue gun, apply a dab of glue onto the branch where you would like a blossom and firmly place a blossom to the glue.

    That’s it! When you have 5-6 branches ready, place them in a canning jar or vase.

    Place them on your countertop, kitchen table, or office desk. Enjoy a little spring color in your home or office.

    I love these tissue paper blossoms and I hope you do too.
