So today its Jovita here sharing whats on my craft table (to be specific ... dining table) these days..
Recently I did an order for Tissue Pom poms (also referred to as flowers ) . As I searched tutorial after tutorial I realized one thing, I just ended up making tissue apples :(...... I made apple shaped pom poms instead of the nice fluffy round ones..
This reference picture was given to me and I just could not get it right till I figured out something.. So that is what I am gonna share with you all today... To make a perfect 10 inch pom pom here is what you need
5 sheets tissue paper (locally called Kite Paper) - Full size
Wire - used for flower making
Thread - to hang the pom pom
First we have to fold the paper in half and cut it across.
So now we have 10 sheets of tissue laying one over the other.
Place the paper VERTICALLY (as seen in the picture) .
Vertically is important to avoid apple shaped pom poms
Then you start making a fan fold about an inch apart and this is what you get. Tie the center with the wire and then the thread. You can use a transparent thread available in the local stationery.
It is important to tie the thread at this stage, as once we fluff the pom pom it would be difficult to tie the thread
The next step would be to round the corner edges with a scissor. You can even cut it in a V shape as per your preference.
Once done rounding the edges we can start pulling up the layers...to start getting the fluff
and after pulling up all the layers this is what you get... Yummy fluffed pom poms....
So with this technique I made 150 pom poms in colors Pink, Yellow and Turquoise Blue... It was such a riot of colors...
You can use these pom poms as a party decor... They really look lovely.
Hope you like this tutorial.
Make them in different sizes and colors and hang around.
And here is another crafty project I made... A birthday card on order

Love the way the stickles shine out on the cupcakes...
So let me know what you guys think...
