5-Step Pom Pom Centerpiece from Tissue Paper Tutorial

I am still getting ready for my little girls birthday balloon party. Here is the cute hello kitty invite and the pinterest inspiration board for the event.  For a centerpieces I created these pom pom tissue paper diy centerpieces.  A quick, easy, and cheap way to make a little girls birthday special.  I am sure you could do the same thing with different colors for other party themes.

Materials:
  * 6 Pieces of Tissue paper
  * String or wire
  * Scissors

Step 1. Tissue Paper– Lay 6 pieces of tissue paper on the table.  The top layer is the layer that will be in the middle of the flower. 

 Step 2: Accordion– Fold the paper in accordion style about an inch each way. Yes I was wearing a heart robe when I created this tutorial :).  I made this after I put our little girl to bed before her big day (it is that easy). 

 Step 3: Tie Off– Tie with string or what ever you can find in the center.  You can fold the paper in half to find the center. 

Step 4: Cut edge– Cut edge in a round way.  Don’t worry it does not need to be perfect.  Just try not to have gauged edges.  Craft scissors would give this a neat effect too! 

 Step 5: Lay Out– Lay out on table 

Step 6: Lift Up- Start lifting each layer towards you.  Don’t be afraid to put hard.  The center piece should be tight so you don’t see the center.
