And the top
For the top, I wanted a big flower where the butterflies could "rest". So I created a flower out of tissue paper. They are super easy and fun to make!
To make the flowers~
1. First you need about 8 layers of tissue paper sized 5"x6" and a pipe cleaner. Or thin ribbon will work too.
2. Accordian pleat the tissue paper stack in 1" increments and secure it in the middle with pipe cleaner or ribbon. Trim both ends of tissue paper so they are rounded.
3. Starting with the top layer, carefully pull the tissue paper up and in to form the petals.
4. And just like that you have your flower!
I also needed something to hold a gift card so I made this coordinating craft. I found this little wooden gift bag in the bare wood section of my local craft store. It was perfect!
