Tissue Paper Tassel Garland

Hello everyone! Today I have a really cute tissue paper tassel garland tutorial for you. This garland is perfect for baby showers and bridal parties!

Supplies

SUPPLIES:
tissue paper
cutting mat
blade knife like X-ACTO
scissors
– tape or washi tape

Step1

First, take 2 sheets of tissue paper and layer them. Fold the sheet in half lengthwise and cut at the fold.

Step2

Fold the sheet in half lengthwise again, but do not cut at the fold.

Step3

Place your tissue paper on the cutting mat with the folded edge on top. Cut strips 1/2” wide, starting from 2” below the fold.

Step4

This is what it should look like. Please note that the above example is cut 1” from the fold line, but it is better to cut 2” from the fold line.

Step5

Once you are done, this is what it should look like.

Step6

Carefully unfold the tissue paper so you have a fringe on the top and bottom with an uncut center.

Step7

Begin rolling from one edge to the other.

Step8

Once you have rolled up the entire sheet, twist it tightly.

Step9

Fold the twisted part in half.

Step10

Intertwine the tassel like the picture above.

Step11

After intertwining/twisting the center, you can hold it in place with tape. It looks even better if you use some coordinating washi tape!

Thread your garland string through the loop of the tassel and now you have a tassel garland! I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial!

    You have a way to explain that makes your beautiful crafts look so easy.

    These tassels are wonderful. I can think of so many uses for them. Your gold ones look elegant, celebratory and even prestigious; perfect for weddings, graduations and formal occasions . Yet I can also see them light and airy dressing up a birthday party, a picnic or family reunion. Thanks for such a useful and easy craft!

    And YES, I would like the tutorial for the flowers you added. I’ll be looking for it.
