garland

I found on the blog named Screen prints an interesting tutorial to make paper garland by yourself.
Laurie Cinotto, the May guest, is a paper designer and creates a lot of cute prjects that you can reproduce at home, here is one example.

Ingredients:
- Several sheets of coordinating papers (Laurie used an assortment of patterned Hambly papers)
- A circle craft punch – approximately 2 inches in diameter
- Paper glue
- Two yards of string
Preparation:
1. Use your circle craft punch to punch out 7 circles for each ball in your garland. (for a two yard garland, you’ll want to make 12 - 18 balls, depending on how close you want them together).
2. Fold all of your circles in half so the patterned side of the paper is on the inside.
3. Select seven circles, and one by one, glue them back to back to form a little half-circle book.
4. Take the string and make a loop and knot. Run the string along the “spine” of the book. Glue the back cover and front cover together to form a ball.
5. Continue to make and add the balls until you reach the end of your string. Make another loop and knot to finish.
