To follow up our tissue paper Cajun hibiscus flower, we have another fun, new tropical flower for you! Our tissue paper hibiscus features pretty papers from our new Summer Meadow tissue paper pack. This pack includes 24 sheets of tissue paper in six different colors so you can make a variety of flowers and greenery.

If you have never used tissue paper for making flowers before, we promise it is easier than you think! Along with your tissue paper, all you need is scissors, glue, floral wire, and floral tape. Use our template to cut out all of the pieces and then follow our photo tutorial as you craft your tissue paper hibiscus flower and leaves.

A Tropical Treat

We love being able to enjoy tropical flowers at any time of the year. If you love hibiscus flowers and want to try crafting one out of a different material, we have some other options for you! For example, we have made a crepe paper hibiscus as well as a felt hibiscus. Try them all out and see which one you like best!

If you craft our tissue paper hibiscus, we’d love to see your version. As always, you can share photos of your DIY projects on Instagram or Facebook and tag #MadeWithLia.
