Beautiful garlands made of paper circles, sewn together in long strings. A great way to recycle paper and cardstock!
I used iridescent origami paper I’d had forever, pieces of Anthropologie catalogs, as well as new & old pieces of cardstock. With this first one, I was sticking to a color scheme of mostly white and shades of ivory. There are also some cooler-toned whites and some iridescent pinks.
Materials & tools: heavier-weight paper, cardstock, thread, sewing machine. If using lightweight paper, I suggest gluing it to another piece of paper before sewing it, to add weight and strength.
