Pin to Present : DIY Gift Bag Tissue Flower

I am alive, I swear.
But it has been touch and go this week.
I did something crazy to my back (like spasms crazy) on Monday night and was out for the count.
Thankfully, I am on the mend!
And when you can't do much else, why not craft?

We are celebrating our lovely friend Marge's birthday this weekend and I wanted to add some uniqueness to how her gift was wrapped.  I turned to, where else, Pinterest.  I had pinned this tissue flower a while back and knew that was what I wanted!  
Plus, this really couldn't be easier.
All you need is:
-a square of tissue paper (4-6 sheets)
Cut a square in your tissue paper
Cut a flower (or whatever shape you want)
Flip and rotate the sheets so the color of tissue alternates
Tape the sheets together
Gather the tissue at the back to make it dimensional and fluff the sheets
Tape to your bag or box!

There is a good chance a lot of our Christmas gifts will have some version of these flowers on them.  I think I will experiment with doing Christmas trees and snow flakes as well!  Glitter tissue paper here I come!

Linking up with Anne for Pin to Present!

Adorable! I can see doing a ton with these - present embellishments, garlands, table decor... looking forward to seeing what you do with them for the holidays. And thanks for linking!

I love this. I'm always wondering how to put the tissue in those bags and make it look good. My method is usually to just shove it in there and kind of fluff it. I'm going to try this.

Wow, this is so cute! I'm such an un-creative gift wrapper, but this looks like something even I could add to a gift!!
