Paper garlands are a beautiful accent for any party or home decor.  They are really easy to make and can match any theme.

First, you will need to start with cardstock punched out in your desired shape. You can use punches, die cut machines, a Cricut, or just plain scissors.

Next, you will need to use your sewing machine to sew the shapes together.

You can sew your shapes as close or as far apart as you like.

When you are satisfied with the length of your garland, just snip it off.  Viola!

Here’s a sample of a bird garland we made to match a bird themed party.  This was a nice accent to our dessert table and really added a pop of color.
