First you need to colour the paper. You can use paint, food colouring anything really. My paper is leftover from mopping up dye spills. I have heaps of it.
Now you can use the Clover Yoyo Maker if you have one. Just follow their directions. It is exactly the same except you are using paper. For those of you who don't have one I'll show you how to make a suffolk puff the old fashioned way.
When you get back to the beginning make sure that you take the extra stitch back to the first stitch. I hope the picture shows that the thread is in the same place as the tail of the knot. Hold the knot between your finger and thumb, this will stop it pulling through, and gently gather up the paper. The paper towel is surprisingly strong but just the same it will rip if you get too carried away.
