Make Flowers out of Kleenex

Making flowers out of Kleenex is very easy to do once you know how. They look like carnations when you are done and can be used to decorate in a variety of ways. The two most popular uses for them are to decorate the car of a bride and groom. These are usually made with Kleenex the color of the wedding colors and are taped to the outside of the car.


Step 1

Take two pieces of Kleenex tissue and open them up. Lay one down on top of the other flatly in front of you.
