How to Make a Crepe Paper Tassel Garland

For my Valentine's Day shoot, I wanted a giant balloon as my table backdrop. But the balloon cord looked naked and boring, so I decided to jazz it up with some tissue paper tassels.

Tissue paper tassels are all the rage in the party world, and have been for a while now, but they are new to me in the sense that I only used them once before. And for this occasion, I didn't have time to order any nor buy tissue paper to make them myself. All I had was crepe paper left over from this shoot. So, what's a party gal to do? Yes, make do, of course! ;)

I wasn't sure if was even gonna work...but guess what?! Crepe paper has hidden talents!! 
Full tutorial below.

The technique is mega simple and quick. Even my daughter loved making her own mini paper tassels (and she's only 6!).

You can of course string these together and make a tassel garland, or wrap them around a balloon cord, and strike a pose like I did...

Not sure if it's age or wisdom, but I've come to realize that my best and most fulfilling work happens when I have fun, and let me hair down. And I'm so glad I got to do that in this post ;)
