Crafting With Kleenex Brand Tissues

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free box of Kleenex Brand Tissues from Crowdtap to facilitate this post.  My opinions are my own.

Kleenex Brand Tissues are one of my favorite brands of tissues to use.  They're soft, but strong.  I keep a box in almost every room of the house.  You never know when you'll need one.  They can be used for so many things, from cleaning a runny nose to cleaning up a spill to acting as a backup if you run out of toilet paper!  You can even make it into a makeshift band-aid with some duct tape (another versatile tool)!

Something I haven't tried, though, is to craft with Kleenex tissues.  I like crafting, but usually use paper.  I did a quick Pinterest search for some craft ideas, but didn't see that many.  Most had to do with crafting with an empty tissue box -- which I didn't have.  One idea that I saw over and over was to make flowers with Kleenex tissue.  This sounded like it would be fun and easy to do.

What you'll need:
  • Kleenex Brand Tissue
  • Scissors
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Markers


1.  Lay 3 to 4 tissues on top of each other.

2.  Accordion fold the tissues.

3.  Wrap one end of a green pipe cleaner around the center of the tissues.

4.  Cut off an inch to an inch and a half off each side of the tissues.

5.  Using a marker, color the ends of the tissue in the color of your choice.

6.  Separate each layer of the tissue, starting at the top and working your way down.  Fluff.

7.  Repeat until you have all the flowers you need!

So pretty and easy!  Have you ever crafted with tissue?  What did you make?
