  2. 2. Before class cut up some sheets of tissue paper. (I use standard giftwrapping tissue paper. I’ve found the best value and variety of colorsat a craft store. I fold and cut to desired size(s). Here I have cut twosizes. The larger size is 6.5 inches x 10 inches. The smaller size is 5inches x 6.5 inches.) www.creative-sunday-school-ideas.com 2
  3. 3. You will also need some chenille wire, green preferred. I use them attheir full length, which is about 12 inches long. You may cut them inhalf to make them go further, but your stems will be shorter. Thepacket shown here has various colors, but you can often find a packcontaining only green at a craft store. The following slides contain instructions for making one flower. You can practice ahead of time and then demonstrate to your class, and/or show your students the slides and have them follow along.  www.creative-sunday-school-ideas.com 3
