I have been wanting to make one of those circles garlands...I saw it somewhere on a blog (sorry but I can't remember where!) and my niece's birthday is coming up, so that is a good excuse!
I got out my trusty Fiskars circle cutter and cut many different size circles from many different color card stock. Nothing fancy, took me maybe 10 minutes to cut all that I used in the garland.
Then I just started sewing them together, leaving maybe an 1/8-1/4 inch between each circle.
I just kept feeding them in one at a time. I did set my stitch length longer at 3.5 so there wouldn't be as many holes in the paper. I used white thread for mine, but it would be cool to use a variegated thread too!
These pictures aren't the best and the background is certainly distracting, but I think you can get the idea!
I am really proud of it...it is fairly sturdy too. I stacked the circles on top of each other to store it so it doesn't get damaged before the party.
I am thinking that it would be very cute to scatter some flower die cuts into this mix!
