This project uses the twine for a quick project to adorn any plain gift box. 
Tutorial Mosaic

1
Materials:  Neon Twine, Cardstock, Scissors, Lighter

2
Directions:  You start each tassel using the same method you would to make a pom pom.  Wrap the twine about 25 times around a piece of cardstock about an inch and a half thick and a separate piece of twine.

3
Tie the separate piece of twine as tightly as you can around the wrapped twine.

4
Cut the twine off the card at the opposite end from gathered side.

5
Fold the pom pom in half around the tied off end.  Wrap the end with another piece of twine long enough to go around your gift box and tie it off.  Give it a little spark of fire to melt the knot. 

7
Trim the ends to a uniform length.  I'd also suggest dangling them over a lighter to gently melt the ends to prevent raveling.  After you've made a couple of these little guys, add them to a plain gift box and you're done. Simple and cheap.  What more can you ask for?!

  1. Wow! What a great tassel making method! It looks really easy. Also, I love the neon pink against the kraft paper... it's just perfect.
