First, determine the size you want for your Tissue Paper Banner.  Fold the Polka Dot Tissue Paper in half and cut to size, leaving the top as the fold.

Next, insert 4-6 sheets of tissue paper into your Martha Stewart Fringe Cutting Tool.  Read directions on changing the fringe size.  It is very simple to use and I’m ready to fringe everything in sight now!  Cut your tissue paper accordingly.

You are left with lovely little fringed folded triangles, so it’s time to get on making that banner!  I wanted the yarn and embellishments to be the color pop, so I choose a pretty coral pink colored yarn for the banner string.  Simply tape the tissue paper onto your yarn.  (My dachshund tape dispenser is no longer available, but you can still get this adorable French Bull Dog.)

I love layering banners, so I made two strands and hung them at different heights.

Then I added in pink and red straws that I strung together.  And lastly, added in a white pom pom string from Target’s dollar section.

All of the texture and color are the perfect DIY party touch and it if you are able to use most of the materials from home like I was able to, this little fringed tissue paper banner costs under $16!

    1. Thanks Victoria! I love easy layering for parties… it always makes the decorations seem more fancy when really they aren’t! 😉

  1. So pretty and love the touch of the pom-pom trim! Did you have any issue with your tissue paper ripping? I’ve had trouble using mine with tissue paper but it works great with cardstock and mylar. I read if you sandwich the tissue paper between two pieces of copy paper and then put it in the fringe too. I tried it and it helps!

    1. I did notice some small ripping when I only used a few sheets of tissue paper. I’m excited to try it using a heavy paper now! =)

    1. I can’t wait to try a little thicker paper next time! But yes, this fringe cutter was a cinch to use!
