  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut a section from your tissue paper ream, and sandwich it between your flower die and cutting plate. Run it through your Fuse, and punch out your shapes. Select a second color of tissue, and do the same.
  • 2
    Stack twenty or so tissue flower shapes together so to the petals are offset. Mix the colors as you go.
  • 3
    Join the layers with a couple of staples.
  • 4
    Pinch the center of the flower to fold the petals forward.
  • 5
    Twist a pipe cleaner around the “pinch” to secure the bloom.
  • 6
    For a different style of flower, cut a section of tissue from your paper ream (entire package as it is packaged).
  • 7
    Place it on top of the die, so a folded edge covers only the left third of the die. Place the cutting plate on top, and crank it through the Fuse.
  • 8
    Unfold the tissue, and you’ll have a petal shape.
  • 9
    Take one of the petals, and pinch it between your index finger and thumb. Pick up a second, pinch it, place it next to the petal you’re holding. Keep pinching and adding petals - work your way around the bloom until you’ve built a full flower.
  • 10
    Wrap the point where you’ve been pinching with pipe cleaner to secure the bloom. Next, use the “Mirror” die to cut a stack of petals.
  • 11
    Assemble the flower just like you did with the previous bloom, adding one petal at a time and finishing it off with a pipe cleaner. The scalloped edges of the mirror make a nice ruffled bloom, similar to a Peony.

    Tip: fill a vase, basket, or even a colorful paper gift bag with your blooms.
