I used up the rest of my scrapbook paper last week to make more paper garlands for our wedding. My paper garland count is now 18, which seems a lot, but I'm wondering if it will be enough. They're so fun to make that I wouldn't mind making more, but the question I keep asking myself is what am I going to do with these once the wedding is over?
I'd like to keep some of them, of course. But do I really need 18 paper garlands? Probably not. Maybe I'll give a few away if people are interested. :)
Last time I posted about these, someone asked how I'm keeping them organized. At the time, I only had a few made, so it wasn't a big deal. I just kept them folded in a basket. That old system obviously doesn't work anymore, so I had to come up with another option.
I had a big roll of paper lying around, untouched, so I chopped it into squares and sewed pieces together to make the pouches. They're the perfect size, and they're kinda cute. And they fulfill my need to sew on paper, which... seriously? Have you tried it? It's so fun. It's like instant gratification.
Next Wednesday, I'll have something huge to check off my list. Can't wait to share!
