From start to finish, the whole garland took a little over an hour--the perfect project for Scrooged. (What can I say, I love me some Dickensian Bill Murray).
The star paper punch has long since paid for itself around Cecilia-- add some cardstock, string and a glue gun, and you've got yourself a garland.
I hung out the string first to cut it to size, then started punching out stars. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.
To complete the garland, I made some paper tassels out of scrap and double stick tape. I picked up some fringe scissors on sale last year, but you could easily do the fringe with regular scissors and a little patience.
After you've rolled the tassel about half way, add a strip of paper to make a loop to hang the tassel with, then keep rolling.
I finished mine off with a strip of white paper, also stuck on with double stick tape, then gave it a good fluffing. Then I simply tied it to the string at the end of the garland and voila!
How is your holiday decorating coming along?
