I love the way this scalloped paper garland looks! This garland is so easy to create. I have seen lots of cute ones made from fabric, but that seemed like a lot of work to me. I came up with this easy idea to make one from patterned scrapbooking paper so it would look very similar to fabric. This garland is the perfect party accessories, it makes any room look festive when it is hung across the wall. This banner is so versatile you could use it for a birthday party, a baby shower or even a wedding shower! It would be cute with some paper letters attached to spell out the occasion.
How To | Paper Party Garland
- 12×12 Patterned Paper
- Bias Tape
- Scalloped Edged Scissors
- Large Bowl or Circle (for tracing)
- With a piece of patterned paper laid out, trace a large circle onto it. You can trace around the edge of a large bowl (that is what I did) or cut out a 12″ diameter circle template from a piece of paper.
- Cut out the large circle from your patterned paper and cut the circle in half.
- Repeat steps 1. and 2. until you have the desired amount of scallops.
- Use your scalloped edge scissors and trim along the curved edge of each scallop.
- Lay out your bias tape. Open up the edges of the bias tape and slide the straight edge of the paper scallop inside. Glue each scallop to the bias tape by adding glue along the top of the straight paper edge. Let dry.
- Hang your garland on the wall and get the party started!
