  • Step 1Begin by printing out your menu. Trim to size.
  • Step 2Use cover paper to create a bright border around your menu. Cut the cover paper to size and attach with glue.
  • Step 3Punch a hole in the middle top of the menu. This will be where you attach your tassel.
  • Step 4To create your tassel, cut a rectangle from cardboard. Your rectangle should be a little longer than the length you would like your tassel to be.
  • Step 5Wind your yarn around the length of the rectangle. Continue to wind your yarn until you reach the desired thickness of your tassel.
  • For detailed step-by-step images see ‘How to make a Tassel’.
  • Step 7To make the tassel hanger, thread a piece of yarn under the wrapped yarn at the top edge of the cardboard. Bring the hanger ends together to form a loop and tie a knot to secure it.
  • Step 8Carefully slip the wrapped yarn loops off the cardboard.
  • Step 9Tie another piece of yarn around the top third of the yarn loops to make “the head” of your tassel.
  • Step 10Cut the loops at the bottom to finish your tassel.
  • Step 11Loop your tassel hanger through the punched hole in your menu. Tie to secure.
