Tissue Paper Wreath – A Pictorial Tutorial

Hi peeps.

One of the hold-ups of putting a tutorial online, is that it takes SOOOOOOO long.

You have to take the photos in a sequence as you make the object, all the while taking notes to coincide with the photos.

Exhausting!

So today I am totally cheating.

No words.
well, no blow-by-blow description

Just photos
with some notes

If you get stumped, just message me or add something in the comments
and I will immediately add your inquiry to the post
in case others in the crafty blogsphere have the same problem.
