Sew Easy: Paper Circle Garland

I started making these a few years ago as a way to use the scrap paper from paper party crafting and now it's one of my favorite party decorations~!
 
A paper garland is a great and inexpensive way to incorporate your color or theme and can be used almost anywhere to decorate a party. I've hung these on gift tables, doorways, or railings, but they would also be super cute as a photo back drop.
 
All you need to make your own paper circle garland is a circle punch and coordinating paper (scraps will do just fine) and a sewing machine! Start by cutting as many circles as you can, the number you'll need depends on where you want to place the garland.
 

 Once you have them all cut out feed them through your sewing machine using a coordinating thread. For this garland I just did one at a time, but you could put two circles back to back before feeding it through the machine to make a reversible garland.
 
 
Keep sewing and sewing until you've reached your desired length! For this nautical themed party I also incorporated a few other paper cutouts. How easy (and cute!) is that?!
