Here's on Hometalk idea Susan!
We used to use tissues of different colors to make "carnations." Fold the tissue accordion style and put a paper clip in the center, then divide the layers of the tissue back to the paper clip. You can also use more than one tissue. Be sure to start the fold on the end of the long side so you have more folds and fuller flowers. We made pink, white, and blue ones. Hope this helps Susan.
