Dip Dyed Paper Pom Poms
 
A pretty, delicate, and colorful twist on the paper pom poms that are so popular right now!
Here’s the tutorial:
We wanted to use fabric dye on something other than fabric. In our experimenting, we realized that plain white tissue paper takes dye very well and looks great when shaped into a traditional pom pom. I love that the edges feather from dark on the outside to white on the inside.
We spread a few sheets of tissue out with pant/skirt hangers and submerged them into our dye bath. We kept them on the hangers until fully dry and carefully peeled them apart to make the poms.
{And here’s a basic paper pom pom tutorial in case you’re a total DIY novice like me.}
Want to see what else they made using fabric dye? Of course you do!

DIY Washi Tape Favor by Jeanil Design

We created handles on guest favor boxes. These cute boxes came from Paper Source but any small box would work for these. To make the handle, tear a piece of tape, making it about 3 inches longer than you want the actual handle to be. Tear a second piece of tape, making it shorter than the first (closer to the actual desired length of the handle) and center on the first piece of tape. You will now have a strip with about an inch and a half of exposed sticky tape on either end. Cut these ends on the diagonal and attach to your favor box.
These would look so great on hooks or hanging from trees for your guests to take.
I think they’d also make wonderful confetti cone holders hung over the backs of chairs too.
