As far as I know Paper Tinsel first appears in 'Des Kindes Erste Beschaftigungsbuch' by E Barth and W Niederley, which was published in Bielefeld and Leipzig and the foreword of which is dated October 1876.


The same design appears:


As 'Fransengirlande' in 'Wir Falten' by Joachim Schönherr and Gerta Schumann, which was published by Rudolf Arnold Verlag in Leipzig in 1961.
