Totally inspired by this flower tutorial... I've made a tutorial for lazy crafters with chunky fingers :)
Cut a bunch of round-ish shapes out from tissue paper (I got a whole stack for .99 from the Asian market). These were a bit smaller than a dime. Don't be too picky... nature is perfect in her imperfection.
Stick a bead at the end of a pin. This is really helpful because otherwise the tissue will tear.
Push the pin through a couple of 'petals' and push them up till they meet the bead.
Using your thumb and finger, pinch and roll.
Very soon you will have something like this...
Ta da! A pretty bed of roses/peonies in no time at all!
