Today I'm showing you how to make balloon tassels. Do you remember the balloons from my graduation party for Shutterfly? Well do you remember why you loved them? It was probably the tassels. Do you know when something is super simple but makes a huge impact? That is what these balloon tassels are. They are so simple yet they add so much to your party decor. Your guests will go nuts over them, especially when they are paired with these giant gold round balloons. So let's get started ... shall we?

Stack all of the pieces of tissue paper you will need for one balloon on top of one another and line up the edges. I used two pieces of each color for one balloon.

Make a loop in the center of the tassel and twist it around the baker's twine. Continue adding tassels to the twine and tie the twine to the balloon. High fives ... you're done.
