The huge ones are really easy to make! And very cheap when you but the tissue paper at the dollar store.

I have actually made about 60 of them bith big and small. I found the tissue paper at papermart to be a really good deal. I want to say I ordered a package of tissue paper and 200 or 400 sheets came in it. The tissue paper wasn’t folded like the ones you find at the dollar stores, walmart or target. I found cutting the edges and pulling the paper back to make the flower was the longest part. Once I got my rythmn down I can do 10-12 an hour. People who have seen them loved them. Best of luck to you.

I helped a friend make about a 15-20 of these for her wedding and they were super easy. Once you plan out the dimensions of sheet and the size/width of the accordion (sp?) folds for the first one, it’s easy to replicate.

Just buy the tissue paper from the dollar store and it’s a super cheap but really effective decoration.
