How to make a graduation tassel two different ways (Part two)

Welcome back for the second part of how to make a graduation tassel two different ways.  Here I will show you a second way of making a tassel.  It's great for graduation centerpieces, party favors and much more.
Let's get started.

DMC Floss (your choice of color)

Step One:
Cut your chipboard to the size you want to make your tassel (I'll be using 1in x 2in). Prepare your DMC floss by taking off the paper wrapped around it. Cut off about 10 to 12 inches.

Step Two:
Place the DMC floss and line it up towards the bottom of your chipboard cut out. Start wrapping your DMC floss around the chipboard to your desired thickness (I've wrapped around 30 times).


Get your scissors and cut the bottom.

Step Three:
Cut your 10 to 12 inch DMC floss in half.  Take one half of the floss and thread it through the top (middle). Tie a knot to secure the middle and take it off the chipboard.  Make another knot at the top to create a loop.

Take the left over string and wrap it around the tassel below the knot (Wrap around 4 times). Tie a knot to secure the ends. Trim of the excess string (optional) or let it blend in with the tassel.  You can also trim the bottom of the tassel if it's uneven.

And you are done!

That completes the series of the graduation tassel two different ways.

As Always,
Have a Craftastic Day!
