I promised specifics on pom poms...
First of all the tutorial for how to make pom poms is very easy to follow and will work for any size pom pom you make. So we're not really going to get into how to fold and fluff the pom pom. Instead, I'm going to give you exact details for varying the size, so that you don't have to figure it out on your own like I did. I experimented with different sizes of tissue and differing numbers of layers for each pom. Here's what I came up with-
We'll start with the large pom pom...
Next, the medium pom pom...
I used four 18 x 26 inch sheets. Stack the four sheets. Cut in half width-wise then stack them on top of each other. This will give you eight sheets to use for one pom pom. The pom will be half the size of the larger ones.
And last of all, the small pom pom...
I used one 18 x 26 inch sheets. Cut the sheet into thirds width-wise. Cut each third in half width-wise. This will give you six small sheets to use for one pom pom. The pom will be about the size of an orange.
After you have cut the tissue to the size you need, just follow the directions.
Now for dollars and cents... this is the really good part! A pack of 20 sheets of 18 x 26 inch tissue paper at Target costs $1.99. I'm basing my figures on that amount.
Large pom pom = $1
Medium pom pom = $.40
Small pom pom = $.10
Bottom line... These things are CHEAP!!!!!
Now you're ready to tackle pom poms of all sizes! Come back on Friday for a round up of pom pom ideas!
