This is the same technique as making large tissue pom’s except you cut the tissue paper. Start with one sheet of tissue. Fold it in half and cut. Do this a few more times until you are left with a 7×10 sheet. For bows I only use 4 pieces of tissue. If you want it fuller use 5 but the smaller the pom the more difficult it is to separate the tissue. Plus they lay flat on the gift so it ends up looking fuller anyway.
Use a thin wire or ribbon to tie around the middle. If you plan on tying a ribbon around the present, use a ribbon for the middle and leave it long enough to go around the box. If you use wire you can glue it on or use double-sided tape. Start pulling the tissue back until all of the sheets are separated.
I made five bows out on one piece of tissue. Keep cutting the size of the tissue smaller and smaller depending on the size you want. The below poms are 7×10, 5×7, 3.5×5, and 2.5×3.5.If you get your tissue paper at the dollar store these bows literally cost pennies.
