We love tissue!
And in this article, we decided to bring together a full range of things you can create using good old tissue paper.
The Benefits of Using Tissue Paper
Now before we get into the craft ideas let us be clear, tissue paper is a great way to make a home or business shine, but why?
Tissue paper is delicate, tissue requires care, and tissue paper shows you pay attention to detail. Whenever a business or home has tissue paper craft within its interior, it shows that someone poured careful thought into even the most minute details of a business.
Let me share a classic example;
The other week I was out on a family holiday, and we visited a seaside town. Much like any seaside town, this one had an array of craft shops that sold gifts that were very similar.
All the shops sold the same ceramic love hearts with poems and words of wisdom written on them, they all sold nice wine glasses, T-shirts and even sticks of rock.
But as we were walking around I noticed a store that stood out. It was a small store that had a beautiful window display.
This window display was small, but every detail from the lighting to the products displayed showed warmth, care and above all it enticed me into the shop.
Now I won’t lie, one of the reasons it all looked so great was the use of tissue paper.
The fine plates, wine glasses and china cups all sat on beautifully placed tissue paper. It showed care, it showed ingenuity, and it also showed off the products.
So I went into the shop, and we were met with warmth; the shop was cosy, it had a lovely feel to it and the staff were very helpful.
But as my partner decided to buy a handmade coffee mug, when we took it to the till I was met with even more attention to detail.
Surrounding the desk was a range of things made with tissue paper (which inspired this article). She had a stunning bouquet of tissue flowers which looked perfect and hanging behind them was a range of tissue paper butterflies.
It looked lovely.
Then I noticed that they wrapped the goods so carefully and with such delicate precision it was almost an art form, and then it hit me, the reason why we had shopped here and not in the other 20 stores.
It was because they cared.
It might not have been something they said, but it was communicated with their approach, their work and their presentation. They cared about the products, they were clearly art and craft lovers, and it made our purchasing decision easier.
Making stunning craft displays out of tissue paper shows that you took your time, it shows that you think ‘out of the box’ and it shows you love art and craft.
And people tend to buy from those they consider experts in their field.
Now, these paper crafts we have listed below are great for any home or business. They work well in the lounge, the daughter’s bedroom or anywhere in a business, especially if that business is an art or craft one.
So enjoy the videos and please share to anyone who you feel would love this post.
