i've always wanted a tissue paper dress. i started on one for a party dress for next week, but realized half way through it that, as a big girl, i looked a tad bit like something off of viva pinata, and wouldn't want to risk getting people trying to beat candy and toys out of me. also, i realized the paper would be some extreme insulation in the extreme carolina weather, which would have probably led to sweaty, gooey, rainbow colored globs of tissue and tape instead of a dress.
not cute.
so, now i'm left with about 150 sheets of assorted color 20 by 20 inch tissue paper, and nothing to do.
any suggestions?

tissue paper flowers .. are fun.. I use the klutz book for patterns.. I am sure there are many many patterns here for that.. you could  make some flowers and put it on a  hat

Tissue paper is great for decopodge projects.. I use it on glass jars for multi color  lighting..

I guess there's the obvious, gift wrapping.

I use tissue paper to copy sewing patterns so I don't have to cut up the original pattern.

Here are a few ideas, tissue paper makes a cool stained glass like project. These are geared to kids, but I could see you making very exotic mobiles based on this technique:



Then just double the framework so that it is beautiful front and back as it sways in the breeze.

You might also try decoupage and if you fee really adventerous try this with sneakers:

And of course there is always decoupage flowers:

Have fun!

Oh!! I know this!!  Do a big picture, what you do is draw your pic on cardboard, or thick paper.  Then you cut the tissue papers into small squares (say 2 inches by 2 inches)  Then, you take a piece of tissue square and put it round the end of a pencil, dab it in glue, and stick it to the photo.  Keep doing that until entire piece is filled.  You'll get an interesting "fluffy" effect.
