contributed by Leanne Guenther

tissue flower vaseI've given directions for making the flowers and for making the vase.  You don't have to do them both...  You can make some flowers and put them in a store bought vase or you can make the vase and put in some silk flowers.

There are 4 different types of flowers you can make.

I've included a picture of ONE of the flowers made with each template so you get a feel for how they look.  Each flower has 20 to 30 petals in it.  These templates aren't printable... just use the images as a guide when cutting out your petals.
