Based on the traditional folded tissue or crepe paper method, this flower was made using donated Mylar sheeting (a factory overrun) and a pipe cleaner.
Repurpose almost any kind of pliable sheeting to create decorative flowers for parties and celebrations.
Cut and stack multiple pieces of rectangular shaped sheeting. The bigger the sheet, the larger the flower. I used multiple sizes to vary the size of each row of petals and stacked them largest to smallest (on top).
Make half inch accordion folds starting at the narrow end of the sheeting and secure with a pipe cleaner, wire or zip tie.
For added variety, trim the folded ends to create pointed or curved petals.
Separate each layer of sheeting to create the petal rows.
Flower complete!! Now make more for festive decorations!
