How To: Assemble Our Tissue Paper Tassel Garlands


Maybe you are not a do-it-yourselfer or just don't have the time to purchase the material and assemble tissue paper tassels.  Our pre-made tassels make it easy for you to create a hanging tissue paper garland.

Tissue paper garlands are a huge party trend and a simple DIY item that will add pizazz to any event.  No matter the celebration garlands can be used for decoration to add color and shine.  Tassels are available in multiple colors so you can choose them to match your theme.  Keep reading to learn how to assemble our semi-DIY tissue paper tassels to create your own garland.

What You Need:
Scissors
Thumbtacks (for hanging)


Choose your tassels picking multiple colors matching your design and theme.  We recommend using two to five colors and adding a little bit of sparkle with our metallic tassels.  Make your banner as long as needed but 20 tassels is our recommended minimum.  Choose a decorative colored cord such as our colored craft baker's twine to hang your tassels from.  With our tassels we make it easy to string each one on to the cord.  If using our metallic tassels we recommend starting with the metallic tassel, stringing one of each color, then another metallic tassel, using it as a divider.  End with a metallic tassel.  Your end result will be a festive, colorful garland.

Once complete, hang on a wall or backdrop above your center of focus using thumbtacks or nails.  If you are showcasing a candy buffet, dessert table or guest(s) of honor, hang your garland as a background prop.  For a personalized touch, add our personalized letter garland.  String these letters in a similar manner and hang it with your tassel garland, with the letters in front.


The end result will be a personalized hanging festive garland.

Jubilee Favors sells colorful sets of tissue paper tassels or you can purchase our Tassel Garland Kit for quick assembly!

Party Favors to Support Cancer Research

Help Support Children with Caner by Donating to St. Jude with Party Favors.
We will be participating in a Trike-a-Thon, May 18 - May 25, 2012, along with ICOG's Hope Child Care to raise funds for St. Jude Research Hospital.  Trike-A-Thon is a fun, week-long safety curriculum and fundraising program that supports St. Jude. The program is a great way for daycare centers, preschools and other organizations to teach children valuable riding-toy safety lessons, which they learn from Bikewell Bear® and Pedals the Bunny® through educational materials provided by St. Jude. At the end of the week, children bring their riding toys to school to celebrate the lessons they have learned and their fundraising success for St. Jude.

To help show our support, 5% of all purchases made at 123wrapper.com during our week long fundraising event, will be donated to St. Jude.  In addition to donating a percentage of your purchase to charity, we are offering free standard shipping during this time.  No mi…

How to: Assemble Mini Cube Favor Boxes

So you've decided to create a candy buffet for your next event.  Candy buffets are hip and now a popular trend for all ages.  Many brides/hosts are using candy buffets as an alternative to party favors.  But how much candy do you need?  As a general rule of thumb, 1/3 to 1/2 pound per guest.  This means that if you have 50 guests, you will need as much as 400 ounces or 25 pounds.  This estimate takes into account that some guests will take more and some may take less or none at all.  It's better to have too much candy than too little - imagine being the last person in line.  Having enough candy is crucial to making a buffet look good. So how much is 1/2 pound?  1/2 pound is equivalent to approximately 8 ounces depending on the size of the candy.  Measurements depend on the size and density of your sweets.  Below we've included a handy chart to give you a better idea.  CupsSmall Candy OuncesMedium Candy OuncesLarge Candy Ounces1/4c2oz1.5oz1oz1/32.752.521/243.52.52/35.54.533…
