Instructions for Pom Poms:
Hold your hand up so that your thumb and pinky finger are folded into your palm, as in holding up 3 fingers. Now wrap yarn around and around your fingers at the widest point until you have a good sized wad.
Pinch the center of the wad and slide the wad off of your hand. Be sure to keep the yarn’s shape. Cut off a length of yarn and tie it around the center of the wad. Pull tight so that it pinches the center closed. Think of how hairbows are small in the center. You can leave the tails of the yarn hanging for now so you have something to hold it by.
Slip your scissors through one end of the yarn and cut through all the layers. This will immediatly cause one side of the pom to burst up nice and fluffy.
Now cut the other side and you should have something that resembles a pom pom. Start pulling the yarn and manipulating it until it becomes round in shape.
Use your scissors and trim the yarn. The shorter you cut it the fluffier your pom pom will be. Trim it so that it gets rounder.
Cut the cardstock paper in to three equal sized strips. Lay the strips on top of each other and cut them into 3 equal squares.
Use crayons, markers, colored pencils, stickers, buttons and other decorative items to decorate. Write your birthday party invitation information on the card.
Punch a hole in the top left corner of the card. Tie a piece of curling ribbon to the card and then tie the card to the keychain. Use your scissors to curl up the ribbon.
