Hey there! Today, I have a video sharing how to make paper garlands using dies for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday series.
This project, shows how to make garland from various heart die cuts using cardstock and patterned papers. I used a sewing machine to stitch them together and simply wrapped them around a small tin that can be used to hold a gift card. I also added a little piece of a doily and some ribbon. A very simple way to make a gift card look amazing.
So, if you have a sewing machine, I suggest trying this method out as well. To get them together, simply push each die cut through the sewing machine and allow a straight stitch to go right over all the die cuts. When you finish, they are all assembled along a string.
For this card, I share how to use numbered die cuts to make a garland. Although I placed them on a card, I think it would look absolutely fabulous as a cake topper. You would just use the extra twine on the ends to tie to a skewer on the left and right sides to stick into the center of the cake!
In this card, I used a similar method to assemble the garland. I took some baker’s twine and sandwiched in between two die cuts. You can see how to do it on the video in closer detail. Again, this would look great as a cake topper or you can add more for garland to hang in a room for any occasion.
