I think with thi spractice definitely makes perfect> I also think that using several shades of the same color will make for a more "realistic" look. Let me know what you think!

      I think these look great! It is hard to tell how big they are since there isn't anything to compair the size too in the pictures. They very colorful and happy looking. I think they would add a lot of color to any picture or reception table. I have ordered my kit and am waiting for it to come - I will post my results too!

        I didn't even think about putting something next to them. I will take another picture tomorrow so you can see.

        It was fun making them.

            Holly crap, those look like alot of work. If you gals are planning on using them as center pieces, how will you transport? Are you planning on making them while your in Mexico?

              I didn't use a template I just cut out petals (rectangles with rounded edges).

              At first I was doing each petal but then I started to do strips of petals and attaching several at a time. I just took a strip (depending on size of petal needed about 1" up to 2.5") of tissue paper and then flolded the strip until I had a small quare- snipped half way down on the ends (folds) and rounded the top. when you unfold you should have a long strip of petals. You can cut in smaller sections and attach with floral tape.

              It was some work but "good " stress relieving work that can be done while watching favorite TV show. And they weigh next to nothing. I was planning on packing in a large hatbox or even a large tupperware container or cooler and checking it in on the flight. The nice thing about the tissue paper is that it is pretty easy to fluff up if they get squished. It is a project in the making and probably the end produc won't look anything like this first attempt.
