– Pretty Pom Poms
This Tricky Tip is dedicated to pom poms! They were big in the 60s—so it has been fun (for some of us!) to see them make a comeback in the crafting world. Let’s start with Baker’s Twine (US/CAN) mini pom poms.
Just follow the easy steps pictured below.
If you would like to create a garland, just thread a needle with a length of Baker’s Twine and run it through the pom poms.
After I finished making the Baker’s Twine pom poms, I began to wonder what would happen if I wound 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon around a fork instead of Baker’s Twine. To my surprise, the result looked very much like a marigold!
Then I thought: How can I create a bigger pom pom flower? The old-fashioned way: using cardboard donut shapes made with super-thin white cardboard, a 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, a 1/2″ Circle Punch, and our Daffodil Delight 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon. When I finished winding, cutting, and tying, out popped a daffodil . . . just the thing for embellishing a Mother’s Day gift! (Believe me . . . I don’t usually get this lucky!)
I could have kept going with flower-making . . . but then I saw a paper pom pom garland on Pinterest. I HAD to try that, too. The result: today’s Tricky Tip features three ways to make small pom pom projects—using Baker’s Twine, 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon, and Designer Series Paper. They are all so easy and fun!
Got any more pom pom crafting ideas? We’d love to hear about them!

The white daffodil petals were made using the Big Shot, the Fun Flower Bigz L Die, and our White Creped Filter Paper.
My sweet heart and I are out seeing the sights today. Jim is a historian so he’s in charge of picking the places we see , The Ford Theater and the house President Lincoln was taken to after being shot, Peterson House, are 2 places he really wanted to see.
I would just love to tour the White House but from what everyone is telling me, you have to have reservations WAY in advance.
Of course the Smithsonian, plus I think it would be wonderful to go to the United States Mint, I think that is in Washington. I will find out.
