Using the Tassel Making Tool

Tassels are all the rage and the Beadalon Tassel Maker makes it easier than ever to include them in your designs. Use the adjustable mandrels to make tassels up to 3.5 inches (9 cm) long. Wind the Cotton Tassel Cord, or another stringing material, around the mandrels until your tassel is the desired thickness, then follow the included instructions to tie off, cut, and trim to make the perfect Tassel.

    I purchased the tassel maker. The suction cups do not hold to the nonporous surfaces I tried. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    I know it’s been a while but thought I’d share what I know about suction cups. The cups & surface should be squeeky clean, no oils, dirt, dust, etc. then lightly wet the cups. Push hard to empty any air. Then wait a minute & use. If any air gets in, it won’t hold so the surface must be totally flat, no texture or cracks.
    Hope this helps!
