Mini Tissue Pom How To

I don't know what it is about these mini tissue poms, but I just love them! Here is a quick tutorial, but the sky's the limits on what you can do with them. Decorate a box, top a cake, or make a garland, it's up to you!

1. Start by squaring your tissue paper off. Do this by creating a triangle and cut off the remnant.

2. Next fold your tissue paper in half then in half again creating a square.

3. Repeat step two again creating a new smaller square. You should now have 8 layers.

4. Now fold your square into a triangle, and then again into a smaller triangle.

5. Now bring one of the lower points up folding the triangle in half, but leaving the lower layer down.

6. Turn your tissue paper over and repeat for the other side.

7. Cut a petal shape from one side of the triangle to the other.

8. Open your tissue paper up and stack them individually alternating the petals.

9. Fold your circles in half and punch a hole through them. Tie it off with some twine.

10. Flip it over and begin to shape your petaled circles one round at a time cupping them and scrunching them.

Now you can top a package, create cake toppers, or make a garland!
