Tuesday Tutorial: Paper Pom-Poms

Last week I posted a simple St. Patrick’s Day Banner featuring some Cricut™ Flower Market images and these adorable paper Pom-Poms. Today, I am going to show you how I created them using the Fancy Border Fringe Thin Cut.

I began by cutting piece of Clover cardstock at 6″ x 2¼” then placed it onto my Sizzix with the Fringe Thin Cut die laying vertically on the left side of the cardstock and the cut side facing outward.  These dies work best if they go through your machine vertically and held in place with a temporary adhesive. I personally prefer Post-It Labeling Tape because it comes off without ruining my paper.

After cutting the left side, you are going to create the same cut on the right, placing the Fringe Thin Cut as close to the other cut as possible without cutting through the center completely. You will want a very small vertical space between the two cuts.

At this point you can use whatever tool works best for you, but I chose to use a wooden skewer to roll-up the Fringe cut and adhere in place. 

Once the glue is completely dry, you will start to bend and shape the Pom-Pom. Try to keep the “spikes” as straight as possible without curling them. Remove the Pom-Pom from the wooden skewer, then take two of the Fringe pieces and fold them into the center to “hide” the hole.

Your paper Pom-Pom is complete and ready for your paper crafting project. I threaded the Jute Twine through the center of each of mine to attach them to the banner.

I hope you take them time to give these a try and post what you have created on my VIP Facebook Group. I always enjoy seeing what others have made through these tutorials. 

 I can’t wait to see what you create!
