Happy Mother’s Day!

“To the world, you are a mother. To your family, you are the world.”

On behalf of the Sentient HR community, we hope you have a wonderful and relaxing day and know that you are loved and admired by many.

We have created a beautiful and simple craft that can be enjoyed by children of all ages. The finished product is a bouquet of flowers, but the process of doing the craft together is the true beauty of this special project.

Celebrate safely together with those that love you, as we envision bright days ahead this spring and summer season.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Warmest wishes,

DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

Gather Your Supplies:

  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Pipe Cleaners

Step 2:

Take your sheet of tissue paper and cut it into quarters. Make a pile of the quarters, fold them in half so it looks like a rectangle and cut along the fold. You should now have eight rectangles of tissue paper.

Step 3:

Make them into a neat pile and fold them along the short edge in a concertina. The folds need to be about 1cm. Once you’ve folded the concertina along the full length of the rectangle. take the pipe cleaner and wrap it around the centre of the concertina. You may trim the ends of the tissue paper differently depending on the type of flower you would like to create!

Step 4:

Take the pipe cleaner and wrap it around the centre of the concertina. You may trim the ends of the tissue paper differently depending on the type of flower you would like to create!

Step 5:

Once the centre of the concertina is secured, fan out the tissue paper folds and start to pull them to the centre of the flower in individual layers. Take your time over this, make sure you separate every individual layer.

Step 6:

Once you’ve done this, ruffle the flower up and put it in a vase. Make a few more flowers in this way until you’ve made as many as you need.
