5 pieces of tissueFirst, gather 5 sheets of tissue paper. You can either choose sheets that are all the same color, or you can get a bit funky and mix and match like we have here.

cut flower wireOnce your paper is all the way folded, grab your floral wire and scissors. Cut one piece of wire in half.

fasten wireNow, wrap your wire around the middle of your tissue paper fan, making sure it is secure.
