You can check out more photos of our gender reveal party here. You may find that you need to add an extra staple here or there, and that's perfectly fine, you won't see it so it doesn't matter. Jen will be back in a few weeks to share with us another one of her fab creations.
Pin it here: Never miss a post from Two Twenty One! Folding all eight sheets of paper together, concertina style Keep folding One long strip Step 3 Take a length of your string, twine or wool you can use whichever — it just needs to not break easily and tie it around the middle of the strip of folded sheets of paper, and tie securely.
Try to keep the staple close to the folded edge, but make sure your staple is going through all the filters. These are really easy to make once you get the hang of it.
Add a staple to center as shown in the photo in the blog post. I found it best by doing the four top sheets to create the first half of the pompom, and then turn it upside down to do the other four. Count out stacks of 10 coffee filters and fold them over. Do this for all your coffee filters. The possibilities are endless.
Once they are no longer dripping wet toss them into a cool dryer for about 20 minutes.
I used them on our dessert buffet and as a centerpiece for our dining room table.
