Create Facial Tissue Flowers with Member’s Mark Brand 2-ply Facial Tissues!

My children’s school breaks for summer in just a couple weeks, and in my house, that means 3 kids who are always looking for something to do. Especially before the late summer sports season. So, I am spending these next couple of weeks prepping and planning for some fun family time.

My first stop when I’m prepping for our 2-month school break is a trip to Sam’s Club to do a major restocking. I have a family of 5, so when everyone is home during the day we go through everything a lot faster. I get snacks, juices, restock our freezer and make sure we have all the paper products we need like paper towels and facial tissues. Sam’s Club exclusively offers Member’s Mark Brand 2-ply Facial Tissues which are hypoallergenic, and free from ink, perfume, lotion, and fragrance, plus they have the softness my family needs and the quality I love.

I have already stocked up with the Member’s Mark Brand 2-ply Facial Tissues 12 box package, which provides 1,920 tissues total! My family uses tissues constantly, not just for our noses, but for cleaning faces and of course crafting, so this package is perfect for us and best of all I get the amazing quality tissue I want at an exceptional value. The 12 box package is only $11.98, that’s less than $1 a box!

After stocking up on all my family’s essentials at Sam’s Club, I like to plan out some family fun for the summer. From beach days, day trips, to fun and easy crafts and activities we can do at home. As the flowers start to bloom outside, one of our favorite crafts is making flowers out of facial tissues and Member’s Mark Brand 2-ply Facial Tissues are perfect for this.

How to make tissue flowers easy DIY quick

First Take 2 Member’s Mark Brand 2-ply Facial Tissues and lay them out smooth and flat on top of each other, next fold the pile accordion style.

Once your tissues are folded together, fold the strip in half and cut the unfolded end into a half circle to give the tissue a flower shape.

After you cut the ends, you can use the markers to add color to the flowers edge. If we are doing a simple craft the kids just add rub the marker along the edges at this point. However, we have also skipped this step and sprayed them with glitter and used puffy paint once they are unfolded. You can really let the kids get creative with the decorating part.

Once I colored the edges, I squeeze the tissues together at the centerfold. Making sure to center it right or else the flower comes out lopsided.
I put the center through a bobby pin, which holds the Member’s Mark Brand 2-ply Facial Tissue Flower in place so that you can gently separate the petals.
After the petals are separated and fluffed, next I wrap the green pipe cleaner around the base of the flower and down the bobby pin.

The flower heads look adorable left just like this, and we have used them to fill bowls and decorate tables, however, if you want to add them to a vase or make them into a cute bouquet for a gift just grab some pretty paper straws and stick the stem into the straw with a dab of glue and you have a flower stem!

    Super cute and they do look like carnations. I remember doing a similar craft in school using tissue paper for peonies <3
