Do you remember the paper garland I made for the last Handmade Stationery workshop? I call it the Loop-d-Loop Paper Garland, and this is how easy it is to make!

You’ll need medium to heavy cardstock in an assortment of colors. You can also go for different prints and patterns depending on the look you’d like.

Cut the cardstock into half-inch strips.

I cut the letter-sized paper shortways so I end up with more strips.

Join the ends of each strip to form a loop. You can use glue or tape, or leave them loose. Punch holes about half an inch from the edge.

I chose to use paper twine for stringing my garland. Since paper twine tends to fray, I used washi tape to seal the end much like a shoelace aglet.

Randomly string all your paper loops together. No need to plan out the order of your colors.

As I was packing up my garland, I also accidentally discovered that when the loops are bunched together, the garland doubles up as cute table centerpiece!
