Easy Paper Flowers

I was shopping the other day at Michael's and I saw these new scissors from Martha Stewart.  How does she come up with this stuff?  Anyway, I had to have them even though I had no idea what to do with them.
Martha's new Fringe Scissors.  I feel like Edward Scissorhands using them!

I used a hot glue gun, a straw, the fringe scissors, and regular old tissue paper.

I folded the tissue paper in half about three times until I got a long skinny piece.

I glued all the loose ends together with a thin line of the hot glue.

Then I fringed the non-glued side on the whole strip.
I used a bead of glue to attach the straw to the end of the tissue paper like shown.

I put down a line of hot glue and then rolled the straw so that the tissue started
wrapping around the straw.

As I got to the end of the strip, I wrapped the piece slightly lower on the straw
to give the flower some fullness.

Trim the straw and fluff the ends a little and *poof!* you have a flower.

Ta Da!
