Tissue Paper Topiaries

The ice cream social was coming up at school
 and the tables needed some decorations-

It all began with a few simple supplies...
tissue paper, wire, wooden skewers and green florist tape-
 Cut the tissue into circle and ovals-
Using about 5 or 6 sheets, accordion pleat it-
wire the middle then wire a skewer to it-

 Next, sheets of scrapbook paper  cut into squares-
fold in thirds and slice along folds on either end-
fold up and in like wrapping a present-
tape the sides and a paper box is formed..
a chunk of foam is inserted and then the skewered flower......

Simple, easy and colorful-
the perfect added touch to the tables!!

Take care, gotta fly-
