Pink Puff Preview!

12 Jul

Part one of doing Emma’s Third Birthday party a DIY adventure I am making tissue paper puff’s to hang on the ceiling as well as a centerpiece here and there! I scoped out online the cheapest places to buy tissue paper but was having trouble finding a place that had all three colors. Looking back on it, all three places had free shipping so I’m a dummy and now I’m going to go order the rest online for cheaper πŸ˜‰

But any who! You can get a pack of 20 sheets of tissue paper for $1.99 at Party City. Most places that show these tutorials say to use 8 sheets of tissue paper. But since mine come in backs of 20 – I used ten. I also think it gives it a “fuller” affect. So if you want to easily calculate how much these suckers are going to cost you – expect about $1.00 a puff! That’s some cheap decorating, especially since these things come out to be about a foot in diameter!

As you can see – instead of making mine completely round – I left the bottom of it a little flat so that it again would make the rest of the fuller as well as sit on a table easily. I still don’t think I’d make them completely round for hanging them unless you want to hang them really low. Mine are going to be pretty close to the ceiling since we have a lot of 6″ tall people and this is a basement apartment!

If you want to see a slideshow tutorial on how to make these – I did a smaller size tutorial a long time ago here: Paper Flower Power

or you can just search on YouTube – Tissue Paper Puff.

If you are interested in DIY decorations, I’ll be posting more as I get them done for Emma’s Birthday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,
