1. Fold 1 piece of tissue paper in half.

2. Fold the tissue paper in half again.

3.  Use scissors to cut the pieces of fringe.  Try to cut even pieces all the way across the paper.  Cut at least 3/4 of the way up, leaving just a little section at the top uncut.

5. Start at one end and roll the tissue paper in the middle as tightly as you can.  Roll all the way to the end of the paper.

6. Twist the middle section (the uncut part).  Make a small loop by twisting the middle in place and hang on string.

There is a fringe cutter tool out now as tassel garland has become so popular, but I’ve never used one.  Scissors work just fine, but I do wonder if the tool saves time on cutting the fringe.  If you’ve used one, we’d love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments below!
