I’m not usually a fan of paper flowers nor of carnations, but these are just too clever to resist. Coloring the edges of the tissue paper with markers was such a “realistic” touch, don’t you think?  Whether for a fun bouquet or just something to jazz up your gift wrapping, head over to Folding Trees for the fab tutorial.  Happy crafting!

Wow. Those are pretty amazing. They’re better than the real thing, IMO. I think it’s the dyed edges that really do the trick.
