DIY - Make Pom Pom Party Decorations!

For 17th of May, which is Norway's Independence Day, we invited 20 friends ver for breakfast. To make our flat look it's part, I made pom pom's out of paper as window decorations. The colour scheme was red, white and blue, of course, as those are the colours of norway's flag. 
Here's a brief description of how to do it :)
Step 1: Take 10 sheets of tissue paper – lay on a flat surface. I used 20″ x 30″ sheets. Starting at the short end, make a fold at least 1.5 inches wide, and continue folding until you get to the end of the tissue. Make sure to press firmly with each fold.

Step 2: Wrap tightly around the center of the folded tissues.
Step 3: Make cuts at the end of the stack to round it. Do the same on the other end.

Step 4: Pull each piece of tissue GENTLY towards the center of the flower, separate each tissue sheet from the others, one at time. Voila!
