TISSUE POM-POM TUTORIAL

Tissue Pom-Poms make a party
or event so festive!
They can be made in so many 
different sizes and colors and look so fun
hanging in trees
or from the rafters

 
 on ribbon
 or invisible fishing line
 You can even use a hole punch
 on the ends
 and make it look like eyelet lace
Have you ever wondered how
the tissue Pom-Poms are made?

 Well ....
 
 here's how:

You'll need tissue paper 
and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire
1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. 
Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, 
creasing with each fold
2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, 
and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. 
With scissors, trim ends of tissue into 
rounded or pointy shapes.
Here's where you can punch 
the ends to look like eyelet or 
cut the ends shorter to make
smaller pom-poms.
3. Separate layers, pulling away 
from center one at a time.
4. Tie a length of 
monofilament (fishing line)
or ribbon
 to floral wire for hanging.

 That's it! It's that easy

Have fun folding and poufing!

ATTENTION ALL TARGET SHOPPERS

 Do you love TARGET as much as I do??
I just learned that they 
have a markdown schedule 
most of their stores follow.
 So if you have your eye on something 
in a particular department, 
you may want to re-think 
what day to go shopping there! 
Now this may not be etched in stone 
for your neighborhood store, 
but if you shop in it enough, 
you will figure out their schedule.

Monday Target Markdowns: Kids’ Clothing, Stationery (office supplies, gift wrap), Electronics
Tuesday Target Markdowns: Women’s Clothing and Domestics
Wednesday Target Markdowns: Men’s Clothing, Toys, Health and Beauty
Thursday Target Markdowns: Lingerie, Shoes, Housewares
Friday Target Markdowns: Cosmetics, Housewares, Automotives

Personally, I am always on the lookout in their housewares and Domestics area, 
so Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays 
are my "magic shopping days"
When would I find you there??
