I try to stay away from all things trendy, but the tissue paper mobiles sucked me in. I love how fluffy and airy they are, you have unlimited color combo options, and it's one more thing that I can make with my hands for my precious girls!!
HOWCUTEISTHIS? I die.
Supplies you'll need:
~ full pack of tissue paper
~ scissors (the sharper the better)
~ pipe cleaners or crafting wire
Unfold your tissue paper and make sure all the layers line up with each other.
Start folding accordion style. I did my folds about 1.5 inches.
Snip off the edges to make a point, or you can round them off like a flower petal. I did a few of each.
NOTE: you're cutting through a LOT of layers, and besides having sharp scissors, you'll need to put a little muscle into it. You don't need a crisp perfect cut... some jagged edges gives texture.
Find the middle, and wrap your pipe cleaner around and twist it off tight. Make sure there's one loose 'loop' of pipe cleaner that you can tie your ribbon to.
Tie your ribbon... and make sure your ribbon is cut plenty long so you have options later.
Start gently peeling back one layer at a time.
