I love that moment when you are scrolling through Pinterest and see a project that you have to make! It gets even better when you realize that you have a We R Memory Keepers tool that will help create that project in a snap!
These adorable tree paper tassels, made with the DIY Party Fringe & Score Board, are festive and fun! My mom, my dad, and I had fun creating these over the holiday weekend, so I have double the reason to smile as I look as this décor hanging in our kitchen!
Using a basic piece of tissue paper (from my holiday wrapping stash), I folded it in half to create a square. It was folded again to make a rectangle.
That rectangle was cut in half, leaving a fold at the top. The fold at the top is essential for creating the tassels. I found that two layers of tissue paper was the right thickness for cutting, because of the delicate nature of the tissue paper.
Note: with one sheet of tissue paper you can make 4 tree tassels.
The tissue paper was placed inside the Fringe & Score Board. To stop myself from cutting through the fold, I placed one of the stoppers at the top, behind the cutting tool.
The cutting tool was set to ½” and the tissue paper was lined up with the ½” guideline. Then I slid the cutting tool down the track. Look at those perfect cuts! To finish the cuts, I moved the tissue paper over to the ½” guideline, lining up the last cut with it.
After cutting all the tissue paper, each of the panels was opened. Starting at the one side, I rolled the tissue paper. Then I twisted the center and folded it in half. I wrapped the center around the Ruler Studio Clear Lights 20 bulb string, securing it with a glue dot. Followed the same process for each tree tassel.
To add festive words to the string of lights and tree tassels, I grabbed the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. Using paper from a 3×5 pad, I punched out the letters to spell Fa-La-La-La.
The letters were attached to the string of lights with glue dots.
My dad punched gold stars from the metallic 3×5 pad and adhered them to the top of each tree. My mom punched small red circles and adhered those to each tree as small ornaments. We all giggled at how crazy cute this turned out!
Will you make any holiday décor with your family this season?
