Paper Garlands

I'm preparing for E's birthday on Sunday and am making some paper garlands for decoration. There are lots of blogs with inspiring paper patterns ready to home print and two of my favourits are Fifi Mandirac and Lovely Design. Alternatively you can use wrapping paper or coloured card.

Equipment
Scissors
Glue
Patterned Paper/Wrapping paper/Coloured card
Bakers Twine
Method
Fold the paper in half and along the folded edge cut out triangles so that when opened out they form diamond-shapes.
Continue with above step until you have a good pile of cut-out diamonds
Place the folded edge of each piece of card along the twine and glue into place
Repeat until you have the desired length.
Hang up around your home or use for decoration presents and home-made birthday cards.
