Birthday Girl & Pom-Poms

S tay tuned for more of this...

Callie's first birthday party was a success! She had so much fun and we are so thankful for family that made such a big effort to come.

We'll leave you with an easy and inexpensive party decoration:

Tissue pom-poms. This is all you need {8 sheets of tissue paper or 1 small package, scissors, and a twisty-tie}.

Take the eight sheets of tissue paper, 20x30 or your choice of size, stack together and starting from the narrower side, fold accordion-style.

After folding, secure together in center with a twisty-tie.

With scissors, cut to round the two ends {or your shape of choice, rounded or jagged}.

Now pull the sheets a part on each side to make a large pom-pom.

Be careful not to rip!

And hang from the ceiling!
