New & Improved Tissue Pomanders!!!!! chime in ladies

I just finished my new, revised pomanders.  The last ones I made were tooo green.  These are more in line with my colors.  All tissue purchased from Target in their gift wrapping section.   What for art though thinket thee?? hahahhah    Ohhhh, and no, I'm not going to add that retarded looking brown ribbon on top.. I'm going to go smaller. Way smaller on the ribbon.


I just finished my photo 84514-1

I can't remember how many packets. But they were huge amounts in each packet.  I made 6 balls and still have a TON of tissue. I used 4 little squares for each flower.  Not too much paper. cheap to.  My Mother in law just left here. She was very impressed by the money saving job this was. She was quiet for once. LOL


In other words. I might of bought 3 packs of tissue and did not use all of them for the 6 balls. I still have to make 12 more balls.

They look FANTABULOUS!  I wish I was crafty so I could make these for my ceremony!  Maybe I could ask my friends and sisters?  Did you post somewhere how to make these?

Pomanders for "Marinas" which is a little less than "Dummies" LMAO


Pomanders for Marinas which photo 84551-1 Cut paper into squares.  about 5X7 (I think?)


Pomanders for Marinas which photo 84551-2Fan fold the paper all the way up!!!!! 4 sheets total at a time for one flower.


Pomanders for Marinas which photo 84551-3Tie some wire around the middle of the tissue. Kind of eye how much you need. That's something i had to play with till I got it right.


Pomanders for Marinas which photo 84551-4Now that the ribbon has the wire. Start pulling one of the tissue sheets up at a time. Left then Right.. Till all the tissue is lifted up individually. till it looks like a flower.


Pomanders for Marinas which photo 84551-5I ran out of styrophome balls to show you how to stik the flowers in. But you've got the flower on a wire.. STick the wire in the ball!!! All the way around till you have nowhere to put anymore flowers. 


Did that answer the question?? I think I didn't explain myself to well. Sorry. I learned here online on this page and I did it.. So I think anyone can.


Pomanders for Marinas which photo 84551-6 The last batch I made were tooo danged green!!! M&M Green!!!!! bbbbbzzzzzzzzz Yuck ass green color. Ewwww

I think I got it.  I'm going to save the thread!  But first, list the materials...and where you got them.


So you're going to hang these in your ceremony area, right?

hahah she said what size balls.. hahahah


Oh, sorry ahhh. Let me go see..Please hold the line...............


o.k I'm back.. took me 4 minutes.. Must of just felt like the next line to you all.


O.k I can't find the wrapping for the balls. But they were the size of Tennis balls. I thought they were too small when I first got them.. But they are perfect for a medium pomander. I got those at Michaels. They come 6 per pack. I think maybe 1.99 ?? White colored. 


The tissue paper was purchased at Target by their gift wrapping and gift bag area.You have to go and see what color suits you.  You get the paper and open it up and cut it into about 5x7 sheets.


"Solid tissue" 20 sheets 65 sq ft total 6m  Was that it???
