Paper Tassels For Notebooks

I made a few gifts for friends at OnStage and this was one of my favorites - paper tassels.  So easy and such a fun wow to add to notebooks or practically anything you can clip something to.
This was a standard 4 x 6 notebook from the back to school section.  I uploaded our Statement of the Heart to Walgreens as a 4 x 6 photo and then disassembled the wire from the notebook.  I used the cover as a template to manually punch the holes with the 1/8" paper punch into the photo. I had some coils from an old project and I assembled the notebook back together with it.
The tassels are 2" long and started off being 6" in length.  Place a piece of Tear and Tape across the top of the long end.  Use the fringe scissors to cut all along the length of the Designer Series Paper up to the tape.  Peel the Tear and Tape and roll the thing up!

In the jewelry department of the craft store I bought some findings and beads and the little clips.  Make a loop in the end of the wire, thread the beads on the wire and then the clip.  I inserted the length of the wire into the top of the rolled paper and secured it with hot glue.

Clip it to the spiral binding of the notebook and look how cute that is!

  1. What a great idea! Love it! But where did you get our 'Statement of the Heart' in those fonts/set up from our website in order to have it printed off? They are perfect little gifts for friends, teachers, stocking stuffers. . . . it's endless. Thanks so much. :)

  2. I have it as a MDS download for a long time ago. It may be in the Printing Place?? I haven't looked.
