tissue paper pom pom

i originally saw these on the Martha Stewart website, and they are becoming a more popular solution to paper streamers and balloons filled with helium. you can make them all different sizes, colors, patterns whatever you want!

you need: a pack of paper tissue paper, floral wire and string for hanging.

stack all (9) papers .....
make 1 1/2 inch wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

wrap wire around center of folded tissue

For easier hanging, thread your string through the wire before you stand "fanning" out your papers.

trim each end using a rounded or pointed shape

separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

finished! i used 12 pieces of paper with blue one. and 9 with the red...
