I followed a scan n cut you tube idea to create some home made decor this year. A modern version of paper chains!
For a Christmas themed garland you will need to cut out an assortment of paper snowflakes in different sizes. I used a selection of papers and wish I had chosen doubled sided stuff as the garland twists a little in use.
if you don’t have a cutting machine folding the paper and hand cutting is an option if you have the time (or child labour!)
at the sewing machine pull a long tail of thread through then sew a long straight stitch through the centre of the first flake. (I used a white thread as most of the papers were pale or had white in but a contrast thread in a decorative stitch might be fun).
Be brave, go straight off the end of the flake and sew a few stitches in the gap before you put the next snowflake through. This creates a chain for your garland. You can overlap a few flakes or stitch a small one on top of a larger one as well.
Continue for the length you wish and leave a long tail of thread at the end for tying.
Easy to recreate for Valentines, Spring, Easter, Birthday, Halloween or Anniversary versions …
Tip: remember that paper will blunt your machine needle
