DIY Yarn Tassel Throw

I was looking for a way to dress up some inexpensive throws I got from Ikea. I like Anthropologie's Temple Bells Throw, but didn't want to spend the money on it. I thought I could create something similar with some handmade tassels and yarn.
To make the tassels you need about 2-4 skeins of yarn depending on how big you are making the tassels. I used 4 skeins because I was making some chunky tassels.
You start by choosing a piece of cardboard the height and width of the tassel size you'd like. The piece of cardboard I used was about 6"high and 3" wide. Next you wrap the yarn around the scrap of cardboard a number of times to reach the desired thickness.
I made 12 handmade tassels and sewed them to the underside of the blanket to make my own tassel throw. It's a fun way to dress up a simple throw.

    First, your website won't open for me and second I don't understand what to do with the back half of the yarn and with the cardboard.
