paper garland

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

- paper {I used an old book that I bought at a thrift store}
- circle punch {this one is from the Martha Stewart aisle at Micheals}
- a sewing machine

how to:
Punch out lots & lots of circles, just when you think you have punched enough punch some more. Turn on your machine and start feeding them through one at a time. I let the machine run a few stitches in between so that the garland had some space between the circles. You can do it as tight or loose as you want. Make sure you don't make one piece too long because it tends to tangle pretty easily. If you are giving paper garland as a gift wrap it around something flat and hard. I used a cover of a vintage book that I found at the flea market.

PS. If you don't want to buy a punch and you don't have a sewing machine I will be selling some 'Perky the Partridge' garland when my store opens up in January.
