To finish off my paper tree ornaments I wanted to add some of these simple pom poms made from gold metallic tissue. They add an extra layer of fullness to the detailed ornaments and are so simple to make. Each pom pom started from one sheet of 20×20 gold tissue paper so these are not only elegant and simple but also cost effective. You can’t beat that! Check out my tutorial below for the step-by-step method of how I make these pom poms. They are a little different than the accordion folded method which is also an option. The tree topper bird is next to finish off my paper tree ornament series. Stay tuned for that. Cheers! ~ Lia

Flower’s look beautiful, I can’t wait to try them!I can’t wait to learn all the beautiful things you can make with paper. Look forward to learning lots from you, thankyou so much for sharing your talent. Your new student Jo-Anne
This is so so sweet, thank you Jo-Anne!!
[…] paper. . . can be transformed into a gorgeous paper flower. Other than poms for gift toppers and tree ornaments, I had yet to experiment with tissue paper to make paper flowers, until this weekend. Having just […]
Please please can you send us your bird tree topper tutorial? Its too cute 🙂
I will be posting the bird this spring. Because of my mother passing, I ran out of time since I have to recreate the pattern. This was my third prototype and I am working to make it just a bit easier for others to recreate.
You could also use a gold or silver sparkle pen on edges
That would look very pretty too!
So elegant! You have such style. I can’t wait to try this – although I hope it turns out looking a little like yours and not a crumpled mess ha ha ha. Thank you so much for sharing the tutorial for all these wonderful crafts.
The good news is that they look good crumpled too. haha. Enjoy!
These are so elegant yet simple…I love all that you do! Glad I found you!
Glad you are here Reneé!!
I’m loving this new method, Lia! The usual accordion method can get tricky with mini poms, since the tissue paper gets so packed…but this way seems so fluffy and easy. 🙂
P.S.–I’m *lame* for not getting back to you yet, but THANK YOU for the awesome email pep talk. That was exactly what I needed to hear. You’re the greatest. 🙂
I wanted to say exactly that but it has been so long since I made the big accordion versions I did not want to misspeak. You are not lame. 🙂 I think we are both on the same busy time schedule. I get it. 🙂
Lia.. I have just recently found your BLOG and am so happy I did!
Thank you for sharing, I’ll be looking forward to reading your beautiful site
Thanks Cathie! I am happy you are here. 🙂
These are BEAUTIFUL! By the way, did I miss those gift tags for the dogs gifts that you were going to try to make? I forgot to ask you about them!
Akkk. So many things on my list and so little time. 🙁
These are stunning! Would make great package toppers too.
You are so right! I was actually thinking about doing a post on using each of the paper ornament for package toppers.
What wonderful master classes at you! Thanks!
