The Kraft Journal - Mini Twine Pompom tutorial


{This is my third post today, please click here for the DeNami Pinspired Post and Paper Sweeties Release click here.}

It's my turn to do a tutorial at The Kraft Journal.  This will be my last one for awhile as I am taking a few months off starting in June.  

I am going to share with you how to make pom pom's out of Baker's Twine that can be purchased from The Kraft Outlet.  

Let's get started shall we?

You only need a few supplies, but I am going to also give a supply list for the final card.

For the pompom's you will need
A Fork

Products for Final Card
Patterned Paper

To start, wrap the Baker's Twine around the fork tines several times. I am demonstrating mini pompoms here, so I only used two of the four fork tines. {Say that 10 times fast :-)))} Depending on how big you want the pompoms depends on how many to use. 
After you have wrapped it around multiple times, tie the twine in the middle and make sure it's tight. 
After you pull it off the fork, you want to double check and make sure it's good and secure by pulling on the ends. 
Next you will put your scissors through the loops at the end and cut. 
Repeat on the other side.
Now fluff your pompoms.
Below is a card I created using the pompoms. 
A close-Up!
I hope you feel inspired to make a few pompom's of your own. If you do, I would love for you to drop me a comment. I would love to see your fabulous work.
