I’ve made different versions of this project over the year but I wanted to make a glam version for a grown up party. These decorations could not be easier. All you need is paper and scissors and you’re set.
Step 1: Cut a piece of paper in half so that you have 2 long rectangles.
Step 2: Use one of the sides (or a piece of paper in a different color) to create a cutting template. Use a ruler to make a 1″ mark on the first side. From there, measure 2″ from the first and make another mark. Continue along the entire side of the paper.
Step 3: Turn the template over and 2″ from the initial side and make a mark. The marks on the second side should fall directly between the marks on the first side.
Step 4: Use your template to cut a straight line towards the other side (Make sure you don’t cut all the way through.) Repeat along each mark on the template.
Step 5: Once all the cuts are made, pull the cut paper apart. It will create a long garland. Repeat with other pieces of paper and tape the ends together when you’re done!
