Fun Paper Tassels August 20, 2016

Hopefully, everyone is having a wonderful day!  I’m sharing something a little different today – paper tassels made using some of the beautiful papers that Patricia carries at PaperTemptress.com.


These tassels sure are fun to make!  To start, I used some 24 gauge wire and made a loop at one end.  These three tassels are made using Haviland Blue Classic Linen, Neenah Solar White 80#, and Mango Orange 80# cardstock.  To create the tassels, I started with a homemade quilling tool to get the paper started.  Then, I removed the tool and replaced it with the wire, loop toward the bottom, and I glued it to the paper.  The paper is rolled around the wire, with some glue added as the paper was rolled to secure it and keep the roll tight.  I added a dollop of hot glue to the top of the tassel to help secure it.  Then, I added some bead caps and beads to the top, creating another loop at the top when I was finished.  This way, the tassel can be attached to whatever you decide to create.  To decorate the top of the tassel, I also used some Washi tape.
