You know in Despicable Me how she says, "It's so fluffy!" Well, I look at them and smile and say, "It's so puffy!!!!"
I went to Michael's and used a 40% off coupon and bought a big pack of tissue paper. I got a variety pack with 8 colors. Since you only use 10 sheets per puff ball, I had extra left over that I'll use in gift bags. I paid a about $5.50 with tax.
I turned this into a family fun project (which means my daughter and husband helped). My husband wishes I wouldn't get these ideas! When he was done with this, he hid in the basement, so I couldn't recruit him for anymore projects :)
I used this blog to help me, as well as this video. I thought the hardest part was the cutting. The more you cut off at the ends, the smaller the balls. I cut the ends into a point (kind of like the tip of a triangle).
**We tied the string that will hang from the ceiling BEFORE we undid them. It was much easier. You'll want to make sure the string is placed correctly, otherwise they aren't balanced.
