Hydrangea Tissue Paper Tutorial

I'm sharing how I make my Hydrangea Tissue Flowers (for sale on my Pretty Little Stamps shop) with you today. It's fun to make but does take a lot of time as well. If you would like to give it a try, here's how I make these gorgeous flowers ...


Materials used:

  • Tissue Wrapping Paper
  • Flower Die Cut
  • Watercolor
  • Heat Gun
  • White Glue
  • Flower Stamens

Fold the tissue wrapping paper so that you will get 5-10 cut from each flower die.

Run the die through the machine. I'm using Sizzix Build a Lilac Die

Place the stack of flowers on your working surface.

Wet the stack of flowers with water, either with a spray bottle or with a brush.

Dab off any extra water with a paper towel. You just need the stack of flower to be saturated so the watercolor will be able to spread.

I'm adding green re-inker to some part of the flower with my brush and allowing the ink to saturate into the layers of flowers.

Take another color and once again brush onto the flower petals and let the ink saturate the layers.

Use a heat gun to dry the layers of flowers. make sure you use a tweezer to hold down the center so the layers won't fly away.

When using the heat gun, the layer will begin to separated showing the each cut flowers.

Now, separate each flowers from the stack and you should get pretty light flowers like these.

Next, take the stamen and add a little white glue. Then insert in the flower's center and let dry.

After repeating the above step for all the flowers, you will end up with these.

Gather 3 flowers together and wrap them on to flower wire to make a stem.

Here is the final bouquet of our finished hydrangea.

I hope you like this tutorial. Thanks for reading and have fun making them!
