No Need To Be Impressed. YOU Can Make Them, Too!

The younger boy did me a favor and filmed me* making a tissue paper flower. Try it. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is! Really! (and there’s a little bit of mom-son banter, as a bonus!)

*I also took video of him doing a “how to” on duct tape wallets…but it turned out to be 3 minutes too long for Youtube. Wah. We’ll do it over again; I want to post it on Saturday in case any of you need a last-minute Father’s Day gift!

    Wow! You made it look so simple I think I can do this. You should have your own "how-to" show! Celebrating you. Isn't it fun?

    Well, I WAS going to say I already knew how to make them beause ummm we do them at preschool. But what we do for Mom's Night at preschool doesn't hold a candle to your peony. I love how much fancier it is. Nicely done!

    And I love how the younger boy helps out. I hope my teens are like that some day!

    My mommy taught me how to make tissue paper flowers when I was a kid =). One time when I was bored waiting for my boss to come back from lunch so I could show her my data I made a flower out of lab tissue paper, hehe. You do it a little different, I'm going to have to try your tricks, it came out lovely!
