A while back I bought a set of three of these from the local party store for an office party. While setting them up I quickly realized that I had spent money on something I probably could have made myself. Folks snagged them before me, so I wasn’t able to grab one to take home to my daughter after the party. So, when her birthday came up a few months later and she wanted similar decorations, I thought I’d give it a whirl. She wanted a multi-colored theme, so it easily would have set me back over $20 just to have the four colors represented had I bought them in the store. It turned out well. We were able to customize the design colors and sizes and we ended up making so many, each party-goer got to take one, or two, home as favors. They are fairly easy to make, and once you get the hang of it, they take no time at all.
Step 1: Supplies
So here’s what you’ll need:
· Tissue paper (any size, any color, new or reused)
· Scissors or a rotary cutter (just something you can cut with)
· String, twine, fishing line or yarn (whatever you plan to hang the puff with)
· A ruler (in case you want to cut things down to size)
