Draw a horizontal line, lengthwise, in the center of the paper. From the edge of the paper and 1/2 inch in, draw a vertical line down. Repeat this step on the opposite end as well.
Now cut along all your lines. You should now have 2 sections. Each section will become one tassel.
Take one of those sections and begin cutting slits that are about 1/8? wide, vertically up from the bottom. Just be sure not to cut too far up. Leave about 1/2? from the top. Cut the slits all the way down to the end of the paper. Repeat this with the other cardstock cutout.
Gently fold down the thin, top piece and tape it securely. But be sure not to crease it. You want it to be more of “loop” than a “fold.”
Starting from the end with the folded flap, begin rolling it around itself to form the tassel. Be sure to roll it tightly and tape it securely at the end. If you don’t like the length of the tassel, cut as much off as you want from the bottom. And that’s it!
