Thanks for the inspiring parties this week. Can't wait to see what you add next week!
I had to ask if she'd put together a tutorial on how she made them. Look how fresh and exciting they are!
Tissue tassels and tassels in general will be taking over the party world. Trust me.
I crush hard on the charm of Confetti System. Love and Adore. Seriously + Ridiculously.
Alas, true love comes at a high price. Mama cannot afford to bedazzle her deck with the fabulosity of authentic Confetti System-so she set out to create a similar look and feel of it all. Not that my junk could ever be in the Confetti Class-I was just inspired beyond to create some cute.
I created a passel of tassels for my little chimp's Mario Kart Mustache Mania Rave. Super easy, inexpensive and so much fun + festive impact.
- Cutting mat
- Tissue paper (you can use any tissue paper, metallics,
cello, fleece, etc.)
- Rotary cutter
- Scissors (if you do not have a rotary cutter)
- Twine or string
- Rope or ribbon to string tassels on
Step 1 - For ease, I started with a square size, 20 inches by 20 inches, but you can make these any size or varied sizes.
Step 2 - Cut the 20" x 20" paper in half so you will have two sheets of 20" x 10."
Step 3 - Stack the two sheets on top of each other. The 20 inch side should be horizontal to you. I place some kind of marker up top so I do not cut too far. You need to leave about an inch or so up top. I used a junky pencil for photo purposes. Once you are a pro, you can ditch the marker - you will be able to gauge when to stop.
Step 4 - Take your rotary cutter and cut strips about 1/2 inch wide up to the marker spot. Do this the entire length of the tissue. You are cutting through both pieces of tissue stacked on top of each other. If you are not using a rotary cutter, do the same with your scissors. Much easier with a rotary, but you can use scissors in a pinch.
Step 7 - Take one of the layers and now turn it vertically to you.
For this tissue tassel mini cake bunting, I used the exact same technique-just tiny:)
