Tissue pompoms tutorial

1.  Stack eight 20x30 inch sheets of tissue paper.  Make sure the tissue is in front of you vertically (look at diagram below).  
2.  Make 1 1/2 inch-wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
3.  Fold a piece of wire in half and slip over center of the folded tissue.
4.  With scissors, trim the ends of the tissue into rounded or pinty shapes.
5.  Carefully start separating each layer of tissue: get your fingers as close to the center as possibly and be gentle.
6.  Tie a ribbon or transparent nylon to the floral wire to hang the pompom.
