The other day I had to make some decoration for a get-together at church and it was so last minute. I had to come up with some easy table centerpieces. This is what I came up with. It was easy and quick to make with minimal things required. And how so darling they turned out to be. Sorry for the dark pictures. I made these late at night for the get-together the next morning.

Materials Needed:
- 8 sheets of square tissue paper ( I used paper napkins, 7 sheets of white and 1 pink napkin).
- Thread, any color. Ideally  you would like to choose the thread color depending on the color of tissue paper so that it does not show.
- Scissors

- Take all 8 sheets of tissue paper and stack them all together one on top of each other.
- Now keeping all the tissue paper together, accordion fold the tissue papers.( just like the way you fold to make paper fans) and then tie it in the middle.
 - Cut the edges in semicircle. (In the instruction pictures, my white and pink napkins are all the same size, but I made some of the flowers, by trimming the pink ones a litlle more, so they were little smaller in size than the white napkins.)
- Now start separating the tissue paper and pull towards the middle where you tied the thread, it will start to take the shape of flower.
-Keep separating the papers and bringing it towards the middle, till you get the shape of the flower.
