So this is super simple.
If you can use scissors, you can totally figure it out.
Indulge me though. I am the kind of person that likes to figure things out, AND really likes when other people figure things out for me.
I made one for the Favorite Things Party, and one last year for Christmas (but I couldn't find it this year, so I ended up making a map garland instead. Next year the map one will inevitably go missing and something else will take it's place.)
Shall we begin?
Cardstock (you know from that one time that you used to scrapbook..)
Twine, yarn, or braided unicorn mane
Pencil with a good eraser
Figure out how many letters you need, choose the number of pieces of paper accordingly.
Cut each piece of paper into a 4x6 inch rectangle
You can totally do this on the front, but my letters always end up a hot mess until I finally settle on how I want them to look. When it is on the back, you don't have to erase.
HOWEVER, there is no chance in the world that I can make an non-hideous backwards S, so I lightly draw the S on the front of the paper, and gently erase the crazy parts.
I like the handmade, a bit sloppy, a little crazy, look of the letters. I don't bother with cutting out the insides of letters (like R, O, A) because that is annoying. Crafting shouldn't be annoying. If you are an OCD perfectionist, this might not be the garland for you. Or it might be forced therapy to help you CHILL OUT a bit...
String on the twine (unicorn mane, etc.)
