Tissue paper is a functional and decorative accessory that gift givers use in gift bags, but some people are not sure how to fold the tissue properly. Tissue paper colours range from metallic to bright, neon hues and they are attractive enough to use for any occasion. Whether stuffing a small gift bag or a larger one, tissue will protect your gift from breaking and make your presentation stunning.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay two sheets of tissue paper on the table in front of you. One sheet should be stacked perfectly on top of the other.

  2. 2

    Grasp the centre of the tissue paper with your thumb and forefinger. Pull the tissue up from the centre with one hand.

  3. 3

    Use the other hand to plume the tissue paper. Make a plume by holding the paper about one-third of the way up from the bottom. The plume should look like a palm tree with a straight trunk and showy tissue leaves.

  4. 4

    Place the tissue paper in the gift bag. The "trunk side" of the tissue should go in first and rest on the bottom of the bag or on top of the gift. Fluff the upper ends of the tissue paper.

  5. 5

    Make more plumes and add them to the gift bag.

  1. 1

    Stack two sheets of the same coloured tissue paper together on the table.

  2. 2

    Lay two more sheets of tissue paper in different colours on top of the first stack. Turn the top two sheets in a half turn, or 45 degrees.

  3. 3

    Grasp the centre of all the tissue paper with the thumb and forefinger of your hand. Pull the tissue up from the centre with one hand.

  4. 4

    Create a plume by grasping the tissue papers about one-third of the way up from the bottom.

  5. 5

    Tuck the tissue paper into the gift bag. Fluff up the tissue paper ends.
