Instructions to Make Flowers:
Cut tissue paper into 5" x 11" pieces. Stack four pieces in alternating colors. Accordion fold back and forth in 3/4" folds so you have a 3/4" x 5" bunch. Cut the ends rounded. Pinch together the middle of the tissue bunch and twist a folded pipe cleaner tightly around it. Fan out the folds of tissue. Gently pull sheets apart starting at the top and shaping the flower as you go.
Instructions to Make Vase:
Paint cardboard cone red. Let dry. Decorate by gluing on foamie hearts and heart gemstones. Cut a piece of feather boa and glue around the bottom. Push the stems into the top of the cone. You may have to cut the top off the cone to make more room.
