Curling Ribbon or florist wire
Stack the sheets of tissue paper.
Folding width wise, make accordion folds about 1.5 inches wide.
Be sure to crease the paper each time you fold.
Find the middle of the paper (very important, or you will have lopsided pom poms!) & use your florist wire or curling ribbon to tie it tight. Slide the knot to one side of the stack of paper. Leave yourself a loop to attach your fishing wire to later.
Using a sharp scissors, cut each end into either round or pointed shapes.
Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time. Attach fishing wire to the loop.
