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.

SUPPLIES:

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

Ribbon

TUTORIAL:

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
