How to Make a DIY Crepe or Tissue Paper Tassel Garland

How to Make a DIY Crepe or Tissue 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.

Valentine's Day DIY Favor & Free Guitar Party Printables

Valentine's Day DIY Favor & Free Guitar Party Printables

This year I wanted to design a kid-friendly Valentine's Day freebie that could work for anyone or any age - Think teachers, boys, girls, your latest playground crush, grandparents, BFFs...and because I'm always saying it to the people I love, " YOU ROCK " was my inspiration. Which of course led to the idea of the guitar design...which in turn made me crave candy (yes, I work in mysterious ways.). Anyways, this is how the humble candy tube turned into a super cool guitar  . Pretty simple and quick to make too, but such a cute result, don't you think? :)
