Tissue Paper Flowers Tutorial

I have been busy making some really easy Tissue Paper Flowers at home and I thought I would share with you a tutorial to show how easily these are made.

Items needed:

  • 3 different coloured pieces of tissue paper.
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Scissors


Step 1:  Cut out 3 squares, one from each colour and all the same size.
Step 2: Place the 3 squares on top of each other
Step 3: Fold the paper concertina style like a fan.
Step 4: Once folded place a pipe cleaner on top in the middle as shown and fold over and secure by twisting pipe cleaner on itself as shown.
Step 5: slowly and carefully pull the tissue away from the colour touching and spread out like a flower.
Step 6: Repeat this if you wish to make a bouquet of paper flowers.

Doll Cake

Today I helped make a doll cake with my mum. My mum helped make the layers of the cake to make the shape of the dress and I made the dress out of icing. We watched a few youtube videos to get an idea of how to do the cakes.  We didn't take any photos this time but we might try and do another one again and remember to take photos.

Museum Crafts

This month I went on a Homeschool History trip to the Oriental Museum in Durham. We had a lot of fun learning about China's past and looking at Museum objects. We even got to take part in a Chinese Dragon Dance. Afterwards we got to do some crafts and I made a Monkey puppet. Here are some photos from the day.

For this Eid I made some Eid Cards. I have a small tutorial of one of the cards that I made for someone.

Items needed:

Glittery Alphabet Stickers
Coloured A4 Card
Optional: stickers and pens


Fold the A4 Card in half.
Apply the stickers carefully spelling out the words Eid Mubarak
If you wish to add further decoration you could add other small stickers or use a pen and draw some nice designs in the corner or anywhere on the card.

Play Doh Burger

I have been spending some time playing with my play doh and making some star designs and I then made a mini burger. It is hard to see the size, I took a photograph next to a knife so you can see how small it is.

Loom Band Bracelet and Ring

I have made loom band jewellery before but started making some more recently. I started going to a new craft class which is mainly for adults but children can come along. My friend also comes along with his mum and we take our loom bands with us and make things at the group.

Below is a photograph of me and my friend with our loom bands.
