what a cute tutorial. I bet this would work really well with fabrics also if you used a different kind of dye. It makes a great pattern!


Thanks for sharing this! I'm thinking to use the technique on lightweight muslin or even gauze for scarves. And it would be fun to create custom holiday tissue paper for gifts.

The results are certainly pretty! Not sure what I'd use it for...maybe decoupage would be neat with it!


This is Darcy, thanks everyone for the comments - if you find a permanent dye that works, I'd love to hear about it, so please let me know!!


I found a piece of tissue paper at my mom's house that I'd done as a kid, and it was killing me that I couldn't remember how to do it! And here it is! Thanks so much, can't wait to do it with my kids.
A great permanent dye choice would be dye that one makes by placing the insides of spent markers in alcohol for a day or so. I also just saw a tutorial that uses water instead of alcohol, but don't think that would be as permanent.


This is a nice rainy day activity for the kids.

What lovely kusudama flowers these would make when cut into squares and folded into flowers. Hhhhmmm!!!! Thanks for the great photo tutorial, darling with child's perspective.

Would a salt water soak work to seal the dye onto fabric?? Maybe ??


On step 3 do you fold the triangle accordion style back and forth or the same direction?

Great scarf! And the best thing about it that even a child is able to make it

Hi! I know that this is an older craft but I've seen it going around Pinterest like crazy the past few days. We would LOVE for you to come link it up in our Crafty Showcase! We love old and new post and even ETSY/Craft Business links!

Thanks for posting this. I've added it to my daughter's DIY links. She wants to make it.

Great idea!I would love to see photos of the all steps, especially the folded tissue paper. Thanks for the great tutorial


Is the paper still sturdy enough to use for stuffing a gift bag, or is it too delicate after the soaking?
