Tissue Paper Flowers-Think Daffodil

There are a BUNCH of tissue paper flower tutorials out there.  Which is awesome, because they're sooo much fun to make.  But, most tutorials are missing one tiny detail that can make all the difference in the appearance of your flower...

Tiny detail:  Think Daffodil.

When you're separating the petals, pull them toward the center like a daffodil, especially the ends.  Otherwise you'll end up with a fan shape.  Now, the fan shape is still cute, but if you're going for the rosette, think daffodil.  No need to expand here, check out the photos and you'll get the idea.

So, the next time you want to make tissue paper roses (and not fans), you know what to do.
Think daffodil!
