Begin by cutting a stack of circles: 1 stack for the flower (any amount you want) and 1 smaller stack (like 5 pieces) for the center. Poppies are known for their dark centers but you can choose whatever color you want.

Add a dot of glue to the pipe cleaner bump and pull the first layer of the center tissue stack up around it. The glue will hold the tissue around the pipe cleaner so it isn’t visible anymore. Continue pulling the layers of tissue up and around the center, creating the cupped flower shape.

  1. Hi! I love this craft, I tried it out today! I’m linking back to you from my blog in a post this week. Thanks! Jess

  2. These are adorable! Love the idea of making them for the fridge so you can see them every day (and not just for putting them up at a party).
