Gift Wrap "Puff Balls"

"Puff Balls"

I love puff balls. I have used them over the years as various decorations in my home. But what is so awesome about these awesome little balls of puff's are that they can be made reallllyyy
 BIG and really small.

So these things are perfect to decorate a simple (FREE) white box and make it look super duper cute for you fun gift box!


Anyways color... Tissue Paper--- dollar store

Tape-- any-kind


White gift Boxes

 Step 1:

Take between 4 and 10 sheets of Tissues paper and lay each out flat and evenly. If you want your puff to have more fluff to it then added more tissue.

Take the tissue and roll it "Accordion" style... back and forth... make sure to keep the paper stays even and together. 

Once you've folded the tissues make sure that it has very "tight" creases. 

Then take tape, thread or string (whatever you've got) and place that in the middle of the folded tissue. Make sure it is tight and secure. 

Take your scissors and cut the ends of the tissue into a sharp point on both ends. Remember if you want the puff to be longer then don't cut as much off. However, for this projected I wanted small and petite puffs. 

Both ended need to be cut into points. 

Take both ends and start "Fanning" each end of the tissue paper out. 

Then  start pulling apart the tissue from each of the ends. Remember to be gental with the tissues paper when separating. It is very easy for the tissue to completely rip apart.

Ta Da! Tape those bad boys onto the boxes and look what you have.. some super cute... simple... CHEAP gift "wrapping" puffs.

  1. Awesome! Do you do the same thing to make the puff balls that you have in your baby's room? I seriously think we might do that instead of those flower balls for my wedding! SOOOO much cheaper and so much less work!
