HOW TO MAKE A TISSUE PAPER BANNER:

First off, determine the total length you want and/or need for your Tissue Paper Banner.  Fold the Polka Dot Tissue Paper in half, leaving the top where the fold is as is, cut out triangle shapes.

Once you have all your folded tissue paper triangle shapes cut out, insert 4-6 sheets of tissue paper into your Martha Stewart Fringe Cutting Tool.  

Read directions on changing the fringe dimension.  The cutting tool is very simple to use and think I am ready to fringe everything in sight now!  Fringe your tissue paper accordingly but leave the top 2″ at the fold, un-fringed.

You are now 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.

    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!
