Tissue Tape Flower

May 13, 2011

Sup­plies Used: Tim Holtz Tis­sue Tape, Vel­lum (pink & beige), Maya Road White Rose Organ­za Trim, Clear Dry­ing Adhe­sive, Fab­ric-Tac

Tools Need­ed: Scal­lop Scis­sors, Scis­sors, Sewing Machine, Fiskars Scal­lop Cir­cle Punch, Paper Trim­mer


  • Attach strips of Tis­sue Tape onto a piece of beige vel­lum cut to approx. 5″ x 8.5″. Make sure to attach the strips as close to each oth­er as pos­si­ble. You don’t want to have spaces in between each Tis­sue Tape strip.

  • Draw a 3″ tear drop shaped petal onto a scrap piece of paper to use as a tem­plate, cut out, using a pen­cil trace 6 petals onto the back of the vel­lum cov­ered with Tis­sue Tape pieces.
  • Using straight edge scis­sors cut out each petal.
  • Using a paper trim­mer cut 6 pieces of pink vel­lum to approx. 2″ x 3.5″, place one petal onto the cen­ter of each pink piece of vel­lum then sew a straight stitch around the inside edge of each of the Tis­sue Tape petals.
  • Using scal­lop scis­sors trim around the edge of the Tis­sue Tape petal as close to the edge of the Tis­sue Tape as pos­si­ble. This will help keep the scal­lop trim even all around the edge of your petals.
  • Using a scal­lop cir­cle punch, punch out two cir­cles, place adhe­sive onto the cen­ter of one cir­cle and begin attach­ing each petal to this cir­cle.

  • Attach the remain­ing scal­lop cir­cle to the top cen­ter of the flower using a clear dry­ing adhe­sive, next attach 6 white organ­za trim ros­es to the top of the scal­lop cir­cle. I cut each rose from the trim and then attached using Fab­ri-Tac.

If you don’t want to cre­ate a petal tem­plate you can use any of the Sizzix flower dies and or oth­er shapes to cre­ate unique embell­ish­ments using this same tech­nique. The tis­sue tape can also be tint­ed using Cop­ic Mark­ers or any of the Dis­tress Stains.
