Mexican Tissue-Paper Flowers


To finish our study of Mexico, the girls made Mexican Tissue-Paper Flowers. These were a lot of fun to make, and you can use a variety of colors or make them solid colored.



1. Take six sheets of tissue paper and fold them like a fan.


2. Cut the folded paper in half. Each half will make one flower.

3. Round the ends of the folded paper.

4. Bend a twist tie or a pipe cleaner tightly around the center of the folded strips.

5. Gently separate each layer of the folded paper, pulling upward and downward until you have a circular shape.


6. Tape the ends together at the top and bottom so the flower will stay open.

Now you have beautiful Mexican Tissue-Paper Flowers!
