Children's Crafts - Children's Lei from www.walkaboutcrafts.comMaking a lei

The flowers are made by twisting two circles of tissue paper together. It is a good idea to vary the look of the flowers by making some in two toning colours.

You will need:
Coloured tissue paper
Cord elastic
Scissors
Saucer
Pencil

1. Unfold several sheets of tissue paper and smooth them out carefully. Lay the sheets neatly on top of each other.

2. Using the saucer as a guide, draw circles on the top sheet. Place them close together, to avoid wasting the paper.

3. Holding the layers of tissue together, cut out the circles, a quick way is to cut out lots of circles at once.

4. To make a flower, place two tissue circles together with the edges matching. Then pinch the centre between your forefinger and thumb, as shown. This will be the base of your flower.

5. Holding the flower base firmly, use the forefinger and thumb of you other hand to pull the flower into a rough cone shape.

6. Twist the base of the cone round tightly. Then spread out the tissue layers at the top to make a nice flower shape.

7. To make the lei, cut a piece of cord elastic about 30 inches (75 cm) long. Knot the elastic around the base of the flowers, keeping them about 5 cm (2 inches) apart. Tie the ends of the elastic together. Fluff out the flowers for a full effect.
