Today I've got an "I Can Do That!" paper garland tutorial to share along with three different ways it can be used!
First - gather your supplies. I chose Christmas-themed patterned papers from American Crafts, Echo Park, and Elle's Studio. Double-sided papers work best so if the shapes flip over to the other side you'll still see a beautiful pattern. You'll also need a punch - I LOVE the new 1.5" pennant punch by American Crafts - and a sewing machine. That's it!
Punch 3-4 pennants from each of your patterned papers.
Start sewing the pennants together using a straight stitch through a sewing machine.
Slow and steady wins the race! I left a few millimeters of thread between each pennant so they'll flap around and dangle better.
Your garland is finished and ready to display!
Here are three ideas for your fun paper garland:
1) Curl it around a stair banister.
2) Hang it on the wall in a three-tier banner:
3) Wrap it around your Christmas tree:
Fast, easy, fun, and pretty - my favorite kind of project!
