I wanted to make a unique fall garland. If you've ever made a 3D start/snowflake before this will look familiar. I used the same segments to make my garland. If you've never made one/seen one before I will be making them later this year but here is how to make the segments...
First, start with a square of paper. My squares are approx 2"X2". I wanted to use up left over scrap papers for this project. I used cheap construction paper, colored printer paper, and some card-stock. They all worked well.
Next fold the paper into a triangle with the fold edge on the bottom. Cut three lines as shown up both sides.
It should look like this when you unfold it.
Use a pencil or a chopstick to roll the two inner most flaps inwards and glue them together. I used hot glue. Then flip it over.
It should look like this.
Take the next section, fold together and glue.. Then flip to the other side and repeat. Do this for all sections till..
It looks like this.
Then glue the sections together end to end as shown.
And that's all there is to it. Super simple, but looks like it took forever. I made this garland during one nap time. Have a beautiful Autumn and Shine On!
