Crafty Today: Christmas Tree Paper Garland

On Thanksgiving weekend, I visited a charming craft fair and saw marvelous paper garlands made by Paul Murray.  I took his inspiration and created my own version.  You will need the following supplies and tools to create this garland:

  • Creative Memories Border Maker System
  • Creative Memories Border Maker cartridge
  • sewing machine
  • vintage book paper
  • ribbon
  • thread

I trimmed the book paper to 3″ wide.  Punched out the borders with the CM Border Maker System and trimmed the borders again to 1.5″ wide.  Using a zigzag stitch, I attached the ribbon to the border with green thread.  Sew simple!

You can find the Border Maker System and Border Maker cartridges here.  The cartridge I used to make the border is no longer available, but any cartridge will work.

Happy holiday crafting!
