Tillie's idea is super easy and super cute! What I love is that you you could use any kind of paper that you want! It would be fun to add patterns in as well.

Cut 3 long pieces of tissue paper and plait them together. This makes a nice little ribbon substitute. Then, it's just a matter of assembling your flowers. I basically took the idea from those tissue pom poms that are all the rage at the moment. I took a length of tissue paper and cut it to about 10 centimetres wide. Then I did a tight little accordian fold, tied a piece of string right around the middle and then scrunched the tissue paper around in a circle to make a flower shape. I repeated this with a few extra colours of tissue and used a bit of sticky tape to adhere them in a little pattern. Boom! There you have it. A beautiful and quick little gift wrap for someone special.
