Cut a piece of construction paper to make a 6" x 9" rectangle. Roll the paper into a fat tube with the 6" edges together and glue in place.
Lay the six pieces of tissue paper together. Cut through all six layers in the shape of a large petal.
Glue three of the petals around the outside of one of the tube's ends, spacing them evenly all the way around. Glue the other three on top, in the spaces between.
Cut "fringes" into the other end of the tube and bend them out to look like the frilly edges of the flower trumpet.
Use a hole punch to make two holes across from each other at the fringe end of the tube. Punch the holes as far in as the punch will allow.
Cut a piece of string about a yard long. Thread it through the holes in the tube and tie a knot to hold the loose ends together.
