Tissue Paper

I have a whole lot of tissue paper,
so it only makes sense to make a whole lot of poofs with them!
But now I'm not sure whether I should hang them from the ceiling,
or make the most ridiculous hat in existence ;)

( pssst if you're interested in making some here's a tutorial you can check out! )

@Alicia- I just played around a bunch to figure out how to make them but if you google something like tissue paper flowers/poofs I'm sure you can find some tutorials!

AmyBean said...

Yeah, I'd love instructions! I think those would make super-cute Christmas decorations if they were done in the right colors. :)

AmyBean said...
