My first project was this garland, made with papers from several different DCWV stacks.
To make this 12 foot long banner, I cut thirty-six total 4x3 rectangles from twelve different patterned papers. Using my scraps, I made ten prize ribbons:
Once you have your tails, secure them to patterned paper circles mounted on scalloped circles. I embellished mine with Prima flowers and DCWV bling.
To assemble my garland, I sewed the pennants and prize ribbons together with white thread, using a sewing machine.
I like the mix of papers not only for their patterns, but also for their textures. The corrugated pieces are my favorite. The other papers are either matte, glossy, glittered or embossed. I love the variety of DCWV textures available!
