On the first day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence showed me...how to make a paper garland for my tree. Sorry post is late in the day (evening), I had shopping to do today. And my following posts will be in the evenings so they are up for about 24 hours.
I decided I wanted to make a garland out of paper for my tree. I have not had garland for a few years because I haven't found something I liked in my colors. I started by punching out lots of circles from scrapbook paper:
Next I glued circles together so there was print on both sides. Want to avoid this somewhat tedious step? Buy 2 sided paper or glue the paper together before punching out circles.
Then I sewed them together, this went quickly, other than I had some tension issues and had to start over half way through.
And that is all--fun garland, in custom colors to fit your needs. I want to make more to drape around the windows, mirrors, etc.
