I absolutely love hand made embellishments!  Why? Because it lets me throw my frugal nature right out the door.  When I make my own bows and pom poms, I can make them as large as I want and I can make as many as I want – after all, it’s only paper.  I got a little carried away with the Loopy Roll Flowers die when I discovered they would make at least three basic sizes of pom poms.

Small – below I’ve taken three small pom poms and combined them on a box top for a luxe look.  These are about 1-1/2″ in diameter.

Medium – below I put together two good sized pom poms and they cover quite a bit of real estate on my box.  They are about 2-1/2″ in diameter

Large – Lastly, I created a large pom pom by folding my paper.  This can be used for larger gifts and commands a good bit of space.  This one measures about 5″ in diameter.

Pom Pom Sizing:

The small pom poms, use smaller loopy die.
For medium pom poms, use large loopy die.
For largest pom poms, use large loopy die however fold wrapping paper and seat fold within vertical cut lines.

Tip:  For the largest pom pom you can distribute how the individual spikes fall by twirling your paper straw between the palms of both of your hands rubbing in opposite directions.  Watch out, this part is fun!
