Note from Melanie: Mother’s Day is almost here, so you may be looking for a cute Mother’s Day craft the kids can make for mami, their teacher, grandma, or any other mom in their lives. Check out these cute, easy DIY tissue paper flowers you or the kids can make! Our super-crafty contributor Lisa will show you how, using items she (mostly) found at Walmart. {Sponsored content}

Although I think mami should be celebrated every day, why not celebrate in an extra special way on that one day a year dedicated solely to her? How about making something just for her, something she can enjoy and admire for days, weeks even?!

Tissue Flowers Craft for Mother's Day

I love flowers. I love to see them, grow them, cut them, receive them, and give them. So it should come to no surprise that flowers are what we plan to make this Mother’s Day for all the lovely mothers we know – tissue paper flowers to be exact. Tissue paper flowers are easy for little hands to make and lovely to look at. Besides, who doesn’t like to get flowers? Would you like to learn how to make these tissue paper flowers?

How to Make Tissue Paper Flowers for Mother’s Day:

Tissue Flowers Craft: Cut petals, center, and leaves

Begin by cutting your leaves. You can cut several at the same time (I cut 6 at the same time). Then, with the yellow tissue, cut a thin strip, about 3 inches in width, and whatever length you choose. Do the same with the pink tissue (or any other color you choose), but this time it should double in thickness (about 6 inches) and keep the same length.

Make the flower center and petals following the steps in the photo below:

My girls will love making these. We’ll give it a shot, and it’s challenging enough to keep their minds of wanting to make paper dragons and dinosaurs instead (they’re kind of tom boys – love it!)
