Make a Halloween Bouquet

How to Make a Halloween Bouquet Tissue Paper Flowers Tutorial @savedbyloves #Sizzix

This project involves four of my favorite things; Sizzix, Halloween decor, paper flowers and upcycling!  Learn how to make these poofy pom-pom flowers from tissue paper and book pages.  I used Sizzix 3D flower #2 to cut my petals, but you can easily do this project with a scalloped circle paper punch, or with good ol’ scissors and a scalloped circle template.  Each “petal” is a scalloped circle folded in half and then in half again.

Tissue paper in orange and black

Old book pages

Green floral wire

Sizzix 3D Flowers #2, or scallop circle punch, or scallop circle template and scissors

Vase or other container for your flowers



Cut your circles using the Sizzix 3D Flowers #2 die.  Here is a quick video showing the die and the various flowers you can make.  For the bouquet shown here, I used both the large and small scallops for 2 different pom pom variations.

These are too dang cute! I love the pops of color, but also the texture of the blossoms too.

That’s it – I’m putting a Sizzix in my Dear Santa letter ;)

Colleen, I really hope Santa steps up and brings you a Sizzix. You will freaking love it. It is by far my favorite tool. I would love to see what you would come up with using it. xo

Great tutorial! I can’t wait to try these great flowers. Hopefully I get to it before Halloween but I love that it can be done in any color scheme for any occasion. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

I have this Sizzix die and I have been searching for instructions other than what was provided with the die. Thank you! I was just wondering if you could please tell me how many folded circles you had to string together for your flower? It looks to be about 20?

Thanks Fifi! The exact number is in the tutorial.
