Sportsgirl Winter Wardrobe Comp!

A little while ago, I posted about the little flower bombs I used to create when I was young. I remembered them the other day, and made a whole bunch, and so now I thought I'd show you how to create them!

They're so beautiful, and such a simple way to decorate a space and make it your own.

What you need:
- Tissue paper - 8 sheets p/flower bomb, roughly 32cm x 40cm
- Stapler
- Scissors
- String or fishing line; about 2m

1. Lay your 8 sheets of tissue paper stacked on top of each other. If you want them to be multicoloured, intersperse the colours between layers.

2. Fold the paper accordion style, with each section approximately 3 - 4cm. Lay your string on the middle of the paper, and staple the string to the middle. This also connects the papers together. Also, cut the edges of the paper into a curve.

 3. Fan out one side of the accordian pages, and carefully begin to separate the sheets of tissue. Pull 4 sheets down to one side, and 4 down to the other.

 4. Once complete, turn over and do the same on the other side.

 5. Fluff out your flower bomb! Don't be afraid to throw it around a bit, it will make it look lovely and full, removing any obvious edges.

They look gorgeous anywhere - hanging from the roof or a lamp, or scattered around the place at a party. Use your imagination! x
