Tissue Paper Pom Poms

These are so easy to make, have a lot of visual interest and are super cheap! Here's how you make these in 3 easy steps:

1. Take 8 sheets of 20"x30" tissue paper and fold accordion style in 1.5" inch sections.
2. Tie in the center and round or point the edges.
3. Fan out the sheets one layer at a time.

De-mystifying Printing (okay, so not completely)

There are two main types of printing: digital and offset. Digital is cheap and fast, process is more expensive but yields higher quality results. All printing is priced based on a few parameters: set-up fee, paper, and finishing (cuting, folding, etc.). The set-up fee can be the most expensive part of a job if you order small quantities (think about why letterpress invitations cost so much). Generally, the more you order the better the buy. Any questions?
