Last Thursday Ruche released their Spring & Summer Guide. They filled their little magazine with DIY projects from their customers and readers. I was fortunate enough to have my DIY Tassels featured! Here is the tutorial again! I hope you enjoy and take the time to create a little tassel banner for your summer entertaining!
