Pom Pom Trim

 Three cheers for our new trim! Little fluffy pompoms adorn this custom-dyed
trim to coordinate with all your crafty creations.

Approx. 1/4" wide. Approx. 5 yards per spool. 100% nylon, three colors ~ Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight.  You can find it on page 35 of the Occasions Mini Catalog ~ along with many other new accessories in the oh sew suite collection.

I used the pom pom trim to decorate these containers (the plastic containers that Stampin' Up! send to us holding buttons and brads) for my Southern Stars meeting on Saturday morning.  The pom pom trim holds easily, and well, with Sticky Strip.  Each attendee received one of these filled with flower brads!
