How to Make a Paper Carnation

Carnation-style paper flowers are quick and easy to craft using a variety of methods and materials. The finished product can make a lovely arrangement or festive decorations.

Things You’ll Need

  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Iron

Step:1:- Layer several sheets of tissue paper. Use at least 5 sheets, but more can be used to create fuller flowers. Sheets can be all the same color or a variety of colors depending on how you want your flowers to look.

Step:2:-Align the edges of the tissue paper. You will be working with a square or rectangular shape.

Step3:-Fold the tissue paper like an accordion or a fan. Each fold should be about an inch to an inch and a half wide (2.5 to 3.8 cm).

Step:4:-Crease paper firmly. If needed, place a thin towel over the folded tissue paper and firmly press with a hot iron to help set the folds.

Step:5:-Fold the creased paper in half. At the center twist a pipe cleaner to secure it. It can also serve as the stem of the flower.

Step:6:-Trim the edge of the paper. Use scissors to cut a point or rounded edge onto the folded paper.

Step:7-Spread out each side of the folded paper. Separate sheets by gently pulling each individual sheet of paper toward the center of the flower. Repeat until all sheets are pulled to the center.

Step:8:-Finished. Gently pull individual sheets of paper toward the center of the flower.
