Tissue Paper Pom Poms


A stack of tissue paper




  1. Line up 6-7 pieces of tissue paper in a stack. Ours were about 10"x10" but larger tissue creates a larger flower, so feel free to vary the sizes.
  2. Fold according style in 3/4" folds.
  3. Tie a string around the strip of folded tissue
  4. Fluff out on the sides.

Cupcake Flags


Washi Tape



  1. Cut strips of washi tape and tape to the top of the skewer
  2. Insert in cupcake. 

Add festive wrappers. We used chevron ones from TomKat Studio .

Pick up Mexican chocolate or margarita cupcakes from Urban Cookies or make your own and top with lime wedges and zest!
