Pom Poms Tutorial

As I told you, I made some tissue pom poms for the First Communion.
They looked really cute! 

This is my own twist on Martha's tutorial, so grab a pencil for my little tips.  :) 

My advice:

-Use TEN sheets of paper instead of eight.
Your pom poms will be fuller, and will remain open for longer. 
-Make sure your folds are 1 1/2 inches wide.
Narrow folds don't look as pretty.
-When you twist the wire, make a little hook (step 3).
It'll be soooo handy when hanging your pom pom.

-Half pom poms look just as cute for tables.

-You can use tulle fabric instead of tissue paper.

Have you made pom poms?
