I started by cutting 6 pieces of tissue paper the same size. (I didn't measure, just eye balled)
Fold accordion style
Tie in center
Separate each piece of tissue paper and form in the shape of a flower. If you want a ball, pull pieces towards the front and back.
I ended up doing a few different types of flowers. I made large and small flowers, two tone flowers and flowers with scrapbook paper in the center. I experimented with the scrapbook paper and actually like them better than the all tissue paper flowers. Once I had the flower shaped I cut the strips of paper in half again.
My daughter liked them better in her hair than on the garland!
I'll be back on Friday to share the finished garland with the flowers.
