Glitter paper garland

Hello Love My Tapes fans! This is Maya and today I am going to share a sparkly paper garland. 

We are in the midst of the Jewish holiday Sukkot where we build a small hut (sukkah) in our backyards and eat our meals inside the sukkah. One of the best part of the holiday is the decoration. The sukkah is often decorated with fruits, flag and garlands.

I used the brand new 12x12 glitter cardstock from Love My Tapes. For my first garland I punched two sizes of circles (make sure you use a heavy duty punch) and sandwiched a piece of string between two circles. The cardstock has an adhesive on the back so I didn't have to worry about the edges coming apart.  

For my second garland I divided the 12x12 sheet into 2x2 squares and further divided them into triangles. 

I cut the triangles apart and sandwiched a piece of string between two triangles. This can be a great craft for kids and actually my daughter helped me to finish the garland.

We will hang our garlands in our sukkah and they will bright our holiday meals for the next week.

My 6 years old was so mesmerized by all the sparkles that I had a hard time keeping him out of the pictures. I consider that as success :)

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a sparkly weekend!
