PTI Blog Hop - Tissue Paper

Good Evening fellow PTI fans!  For tonight's blog hop our challenge was anything tissue paper.  I am going to share a project that has nothing to do with stamping (although it could if you wanted it to).


Last year for Mother's Day we had 4 generations of "the girls" together for brunch.  For a fun activity, we used tissue paper to make festive hats.  You can see better pictures by checking out my Facebook album here.


Sophie and I made a reproduction so you could get a better look.  These are so simple and fun.  You layer sheets of tissue paper, hold them on your head and wrap duct tape around to form the hat.  Of course we used purple duct tape match :)  Then we made paper flowers to decorate the front.  We trimmed the paper to shape the hats and adhered our embellishments.  We had such a fun time making these!  All these ages  could participate and there was lots of giggling.  Even Oma got a kick out of how well they turned out.



I hope  you all are inspired by our creations and have maybe found a fun activity for your Mother's Day celebration.

Thanks for stopping by ~ MamaReebs

Okay now that is adorable and you used such fun tissue! Reminds me of the Christmas tea I take the girls to each year, you have to wear a straw hat to participate but maybe we'll do a summer tea and have a 'make your own hat' event first.
