Crafty Tuesday

Small boquet

Every Tuesday I try to do something crafty with the kids, even if it's just some drawing. Today we made some decorations for Miss Two's upcoming Pink and Blue themed birthday party. These are really easy to make, but look very effective.

Cut tissue paper into squares, and stack 8 - 10 on top of each other. Accordion fold all together, then secure with a pipe cleaner. You can just wrap one end of the cleaner around the centre of your paper, or you can do as we did, and fold the cleaner in half, twisting the two halves together under the paper. Then just gently seperate each layer of paper. There's no need to scrunch the paper, the scrunchiness forms automatically as part of the process.
