Technique Tuesday – Pom Pom Fun!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you and today it is making cut little Pom Poms!!!!

I am loving the Pink little Pom Pom on that party hat!!!! It is just so fluffy!!! And fairly easy to make! Let’s get started!

Supplies Needed: Baker’s Twine (I prefer to use the Thick style), a fork or piece of scrap paper, and a needle

The supply list is short and a little odd but you will see! For this card, I used the Thick Strawberry Slush Baker’s Twine. Since I wanted a smaller pom pom, I just wrapped the twine around the tines of a fork about 10 times. Then you will take another piece of the twine and loop it through the middle tines and tie all of your loops together. Now you can slide the loops off of the fork and cut all of the loops. I do kind of like all of the loops too…super cute! Once you can have cut your loops, you can either stop there or take your needle and run it up each piece of Baker’s Twine to fray the ribbon into lots of smaller strands. This is the part that sometimes can take awhile and make you want to go crazy! Once you think you have done them all, you find another one. 🙂 Fluff all of the pieces and your Pom Pom is complete!!!! I attached the Pom Pom to the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper triangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I layered the party hat onto a piece of Strawberry Slush that I had run through my Big Shot with the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder! The greeting is from Remembering Your Birthday and I punched it out with my Decorative Label Punch!

For this adorable gift box, I decorated it with the All Is Calm Designer Washi Tape which is super simple. Then I used the Silver Baker’s Twine for the pom pom. To make this one a little bigger, I wrapped the twine around a piece of scrap paper that was wider than the fork. Again 10 times around, slide it off and tie it in the middle, cut the loops and fray it!
