Tissue Rosette Kissing Balls

The Idea Room blog has a great way to jazz up any room!  We think you could also make ornaments out of these great flowers, too.  Have fun with it!  

- Streamers in fun colors
- A foam ball for the center
- Glue gun

That's it!

First off you will need a couple of rolls of tissue paper streamers. You can find them many places in many colors. Mine were $1 each.
Start by cutting the paper into strips about 24 inches long. Then crumple them up to make them softer {this part is optional, depends on what look you like–experiment}. Then fold the top 1/3 of it down so it is not as wide. {again…optional}
Now take your strip and start on one end and begin rolling it up between your fingers.
After you have a few rolls, continue to roll it up but now twist the paper.
Now just continue to roll and twist until you have reached the end of the strip. I liked to add a drop of hot glue to the end so they did not unravel.
After you have a few rosettes made, start gluing {I used a glue gun} them onto a round styrofoam ball. I used 2 and 3 inch ones to make them in different sizes. Just glue them close together and fit them in where they sit together nicely.
