Oh, and don’t forget, there are some freebies to pick up along the way too! You should have arrived here from Rebecca Kettner’s Pictures to Scrapbook.  If you haven’t, you can start your whirlwind journey at Lain Ehmann’s Layout a Day

One of the best Mother’s Day presents I ever got was a bouquet of tissue paper flowers my then three-year-old son made with my mother after I gave birth to my second son. While I would love to show you how to make tissue paper flowers if you don’t know already, there are many, many videos up on youtube that more than adequately teach the technique.

However, I have a tutorial for you that will help you make tissue paper flowers that are unique and extra-gorgeous. Have you ever tried to tie-dye tissue paper? I have, and it’s fun and addicting. Want to learn how?


Tie-dye tissue paper can be used for so many things. I used one piece to make a tissue paper flower for a vase, and another piece to make a flower to add to a barrette. I used the scraps from those two flowers to make a page. You could use it for gift wrapping, or modge podge it onto glassware. There are lots of creative options!

      Thanks Trisha! Hope you have fun with it!

  • Beth

    What a great tutorial Heather! I bet my little one would love to try this with me.

    • Heather

      Just expect ink stained fingers! I recommend old clothes as well. At one point one of the misters got clogged, sprayed sideways and got my son’s feet!

  • Pam @ Keeping Life Creative

    What a fun tutorial! I can think of tons of crafty uses for this. Thanks for the idea! Pinned :)

    • Heather

      Thanks Pam! Hopefully a lot of people will have fun with this.

    I never would have thought to tie die tissue paper. My granddaughter loves working with tissue paper. She has made several flowers. I cannot wait to show her your site. She will be so thrilled. Thanks

    • Heather

      So glad you liked it Patricia! Hope you and your granddaughter have with it!

  • Debbie ONeal

    WOW Heather…you really inspired me to use my mist inks that have just been sitting around ! Love the bullseye tie die…can see that being a great gift embellishment or making big pom poms to hang up over the table on Mother’s Day Brunch. Thanks for the great tutorial
