sewn paper garland

inspired by a few different posts around blogland, i decided to try my hand at a sewn paper garland. it turned out to be a very simple process, and the perfect addition to our tree.

-cut circles from simple paper (i used my favorite punch)
-sew together with festive thread
-decorate cheerily! trim the tree, windows, and mantle!

they come together easily enough that i think i'll make a few more strands with decorative papers and use them to embellish gifts.
