remember last week, when I posted our
I have had several ask about this:
The Tissue Tassel Banner
It was super easy to make…just a tad time consuming,
when working by yourself.
in the morn.
right before the party.
But it turned out great.
And I have since moved it to her room
and hung it around the bed.
I see another one in the near furture in her room
when we move again shortly.
I had looked for metallic tissue to mix in,
but since I had the idea when I was already
in the store, and I couldn’t find any,
I tossed that idea, and went with what I could find.
- 1/2 sheet of 20″ x 20″ or 20″ x 24″ tissue paper or mylar per tassel
- ribbon or cord
Fold a piece of tissue paper in half and in half the other way. Cut strips towards the fold to create fringe, leaving about 1 inch uncut at the fold line.
Once all strips are cut, unfold the tissue and cut in half so you have 2 sheets with fringe (to make 2 tassels).
I cut the solids a bit thicker, and the dots pretty thin to create different weight.
Unfold tissue paper. Begin rolling tightly down the middle crease. Continue rolling, fold in half and then twist to create a loop for hanging.
Run the thin cord (I used twine) through the hole.
You may want to use a small dab of glue to keep in place
Measure out the length that you need, and I recommend setting it out on the floor, with the twine, and go ahead and space it out. Especially since this can be a bit consuming, you don’t want to have too many or not enough when all said and done.
