    Hi, I found you on Pinterest. Love this DIY Project & would like to make one for some Valentine’s Mini-Photo Sessions I’m doing. One question, How much tissue paper do I need or for ____ ft. long garland I would need how much tissue paper? Thank you very much!!

    You might want to use a decorative cord to fix the two sides together rather than glueing them. Picture a graduation tassel with the gold cinching all the strings of the tassel. I used a gold cord right where you would glue but you could be really creative and use lots of different materials.. Hold the twisted tissue pieces where you would glue them together. Take the decorative cord and make a loop with the cord then above the loop wrap 4 to 5 times around the joint. Put the end of the cord through the loop you made. The pull the cord from the top and you have just buried the ends underneath your wraps. Carefully trim the ends of the cord. Just added a nice pop to an already beautiful tassel!
