tissue flowers

i hosted a fiesta playdate for cinco de mayo, and along with lunch, i had a craft for everyone to participate in, moms and kids!  it turned out to be so much fun making these flowers.  we were addicted!  i picked up tissue paper, multi-color and design (polka dots and stripes, etc), white and green pipe cleaner, some mason jars to use as vases, and ribbon to adorn the jars.  sarah was so nice to snap some shots of the flowers everyone made (thanks again sarah)!  i had to share these with everyone because i could definitely envision these flowers being used for countless events, from a garden style birthday or shower, to a fun way to add a little whimsy to a brunch.  i found the tutorial on foldingtrees.com.  enjoy.












hard at work :)
i took a couple pics of the final boquets of flowers ella and i made ;)
