Default Tulle puff question: amt of tulle to buy...

Hello! I read a FAB tut on tulle puffs here on HG and now I'm dying to make them for my daughters 4th bdy. This was the instruction on material needed:
8 yards of tulle 6-8 inches wide (cut into lengths of about 4-1/2 to 5 feet)

Does that mean EACH puff needs that much??? Or ONE strip is what makes one puff? Otherwise, that's an insane amount of tulle for 1 wand, right?

Anyone make a puff a little smaller and could tell me what amount of tulle they used???

I use 6" wide tulle and cut them at about 3" and use approx 40 pieces. These are the ones I make. I also add ribbon in mine and hand sew them. They aren't like the super full ones, but I think they are still cute and are a great seller for me.

Ok it's late for me so let me make sure I've got this--you use 40 pieces of tulle?? Oh my maybe this isn't a good idea for the bdy party.

You do not have to use that much. It just depends on how full you want your wand to be. I also use 6 in wide tulle, and many times will use what's left over from the tutu I'm making the wand to go with : Or i just use my scrap tulle for these.
To make a smaller tulle puff, just cut your squares smaller and then don't stack nearly as many on top of each other. I had a request for a hair bow like this and so I made it much smaller than the measurements given for the wands, and I have also made small wands. So, you can deffinately make a small one to suit your own needs for it.
I am sorry that I can't tell you the exact measurements or amount of tulle I used, but I know it wasn't nearly as much. I just sort of 'eye' it, and I cut my squares to the aprox. width I will want the wand. Then, I just stack them until my little tulle 'piles' have an even amount, that looks like they'll be about the size I need.
I also hand sew my wands, and add everything in them from ribbon and korkers to rhinestones and trim.
Hope this helps. I will try to make a small one today, so that I can give you exact measurements, but I usually just 'eye' it, and cut them and stack them for what I think will look good for the size I am making.
