Well....I have finished all my projects for market. Thirty two pieces. All done - phew! A big achievement for both Maves and I. So this weekend we will have fun photographing them and thinking about what markets we will sell our wares at this Christmas season. Yay to us! Upon finishing all the little pieces I decided to continue on my crafty crusade and got out my paper stash. After focusing on fabric, felt, beads and thread for a few months, it was nice to go through all my pretty papers and try out my brand new paper punch.
I started making lots of these:
Then when I had a bunch of them ready I ran them through the sewing machine.
In between each shape, I would leave a little thread to give them some room to just hang out
and voila!! A paper garland :-)
This was by far the quickest project I have ever made. Plus now that I have tried it, I am thinking Christmas decorations and filling the apartment with pretty garlands. Just don't tell Martino. He might think its a little too girlie. But I loved how these turned out and now that spring is here and our apartment is filled with light and beautiful breeze, these little guys will flutter away and add a festive feel to our place.
