Depending on the size you want your flowers to be, you will cut the a stack (preferably three) of tissue paper. Same size all around.  Then on a flat surface start folding the paper, as shown. Then using a craft pipe cleaner tie the middle of the folded paper, as shown. Cut the ends of the paper to make an oval design ( you may also get creative with cutting the ends.)
