I didn't mean to sign up for a Woven Wednesday. Why, you might ask?
Because I'm not crafty.
Okay, I make a scrapbook calendar and have a lot of my pictures in pretty scrapbooks, but those are pretty simple.
But, here I am.
My book fair (I'm an elementary school librarian) is next week, and it's a fiesta theme. One of the decorations Scholastic shared was making paper flowers with tissue paper.
So, here's my attempt at the craft.
1. Make a pile of square tissue paper with three different layers.
Bottom layer: 6 sheets
Middle layer: 4 sheets
Top layer: 2 sheets
(Notice I don't cut very straight)
Lesson Learned: Make the layers different sizes with the top being the biggest.
2. Fold the combined sheets accordion style, making sure each fold is 1-inch. Keep the papers together as you fold.
