I wanted to make some realistic paper flowers, and this is what I came up with:



I coloured the edges of the tissue paper petals to make them stand out and add realism:



I also used floral tape to make the stems look natural.

Full instructions and a detailed tutorial here: http://foldingtrees.com/2008/08/flower-week-tissue-paper-carnations/
