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.
Fold the stack in half.
Fold it in half again.
Cut slits into the side without the fold.
Open your tissue paper up.
Cut it down the center.
Open up each sheet of tissue paper.
Roll each sheet of tissue paper one at a time ...
... until you have it all rolled up.
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.
