Another craft for those left over strips!

Thick strips work best. It’s ok if the edges aren’t perfect.

Start rolling the strips leaving a little hole in the center. About halfway down a pencil tip. You’ll need to be able to fit one side of scissors in there.

Tape your roll closer to one end.

Insert one side of the scissors in the center and start making cuts down the roll. About 3/4 of the way down the roll.

This was a rather thick one so I started with 4 cuts. You can make more as you start floofing out the pieces.

Start curling from the bottom using your nail, rolling on a pen or with the side of scissors. Keep taking a piece or two at a time and curling and flaring out.

Cut larger pieces to flare out easier and to fluff it up some more. 

And that’s all!

Your pom pom is ready for the tree.
