|Cut 2 pieces of bakers twine 8-inches long (twine tutorial link given in the supply list).Fold tissue paper down 4-inches.(It is easier to see this on the green tissue paper, but in other photos I am using yellow tissue paper).|
|When working with young children, draw a line 1/2-in down from the top from one end to the other.Cut the paper lengthwise using the open edge of the fold as a guide. (see photo). You will have a rectangular piece of paper.|
|Unfold the tissue paper. Make sure that one edge of the fringe is pointing towards you.|
|Fold the tissue paper in half so that the right end of tissue paper so that it meets the left end.
This makes it easier to handle.Repeat the folding process one more time. Yours should look like the picture.
|Roll tissue paper up starting at one end. Secure the loose end with a piece of clear tape if you like.|
|Fold it in half.|
|Place one of the pieces of string in the fold. This will be used to tie the tassel onto to whatever you will be tying it on, for example, a long string of tassels tied to a length of twine.|
|Hang and enjoy!|
