    Hi Guys, I'm interested to know if anyone has made tissue paper puffs for their AHR before? I think they look very nice but I can just picture the paper ripping very easily? I read online you can just make them yourself rather then purchasing the martha stewart kit, so figured i would do that with our colors.

    Here is a picture, of anyone does not know what they are.

      I haven't even seen those before but they are adorable! Might not be the best for an outdoor setting as tissue is so fragile, I'm not sure how it would hold up with any wind. They are very pretty though!

        I have never made them but the mexican flowers are kinda similar if you just tweak them a little so they make a ball (you can tape the sides together)

          My friend made those for a shower! They look great. I think Martha Stewart has a template on her site so you don't have to buy the kit-maybe mistaken but I think I definitely recall that.
          They won't look right if you use anything other than tissue paper...it won't rip as easily as you think! I mean they'll be hanging right?

          Good luck!

            Opps, sorry Yes.. I meant to say I am using these for the AHR and not outside.
            I think I may do a trial this weekend and see :)

              I have made these for a birthday party - they are easy to make, they don't rip easily and yes to can hang them outside. We double taped where we wanted to string them then we hole punched through the tape then we hung them. It was a little windy and they flowed in the wind just fine. Sorry no pics.

                I've been thinking of trying these for our AHR too, glad to know they are easy to make! I was a little worried about how to hang them, but I think the tape trick is a good idea

                  I love these. I ripped out a picture from the most recent Martha Stewart Weddings magazine of them and think we might use them for our rehearsal dinner. I know this is the DIY forum but does anyone know where I can find them? My future in-laws are hosting the rehearsal dinner and . . . . well, they aren't so crafty.

                    I agree these are so pretty! I used to make tissue paper flowers all the time as a kid so I can't see these being very hard to make. Its really the same concept. Good luck and let us know how they turn out.
