  1. Orange tissue paper
  2. Pipe cleaner 
  3. Scissors 
  4. Ruler 

Step 1: Cut six 4 x 9 inch rectangles of tissue paper. 

Step 2: Fold all six of your pieces of tissue paper together, accordion style. 

Step 3: Secure it in the center with a pipe cleaner.

Step 4: Fan out and unfold, carefully, a single sheet of paper, at a time, from each side. Continue to do so until everyone is fanned out.
