Difficulty easy

Materials

  • tissue paper
  • cord or ribbon
  • fine wire
  • washi tape (optional)

Tools

  • craft scissors
  • metal ruler
  • blade knife
  • self-healing cutting mat

Instructions

  1. Fold the paper. Fold a rectangular piece of tissue paper in half widthwise and then again lengthwise. Check the size guide below to determine the correct size of the tissue paper rectangle.
  2. Cut the fringes. With scissors or a blade knife and metal ruler, cut vertical strips into the folded paper, leaving 5 centimeters or 2 inches of uncut tissue at the folded end.
    Tip: If you’re working with a blade knife and ruler, it’s best to work on a cutting matt to protect the work surface.
  3. Form the tassels. Unfold the sheet and carefully straighten entangled paper strips. Roll up the uncut center section, then twist firmly and bend into a loop. Fasten the tassel with a small piece of wire. Optionally, decorate the base of the tassel with washi tape to make it look even prettier. We’re using gold glitter washi tape for extra shimmer.
  4. Make the garland. String up the tassel on a cord or ribbon, and trim their ends if desired. Using this technique you can create tassels in various sizes, you can find measurements for those in the description.

Notes

Size Guide

You can create tassel in various sizes, and use large tassels for as wall decoration, medium tassels for gift packaging, or make mini tassel garlands for cakes. Here are a few options, ranging from small to large to give you a starting point when you cut out the tissue paper rectangles. The technique is the same for all sizes.

  • Large Tassel (22 cm / 9 in):  50 cm x 20 cm / 20 in x 8 in
  • Medium Tassel (12 cm / 5 in): 25 cm x 10 / 10 in x 4 in
  • Small Tassel (5 cm / 2 in): 10 cm x 4 cm / 4 in x 2 in
