Vellum Gift Wrap Garland by Becky Olsen

Hello Friends in Happy Paper Crafting!

I want to share a fun and fresh way to create a vellum garland that can be used as a gift wrap garland that will be re-usable as a sweet decor item.

Start with a few paper punches or die cut shapes, and some of the beautiful vellum patterns.


I used one sheet from each of the smaller vellum packs and started punching!


Once you have a nice pile of shapes, turn on the sewing machine and start feeding in one piece at a time, leaving a tiny space (1/4" to an 1") between each.


Continue until you have run out of punched pieces or you achieve your desired length. I was able to stitch about six feet of garland with just three small sheets of paper!

Wrap a gift in desired paper, I love the look of the kraft color with this elegant white and silver vellum. It gives a "delicious juxtaposition" and one of my favorite crafty friends calls it  ;o)


You could add a tag, write on the kraft wrap or one of the shapes with a permanent pen. Elegant, easy and when the wrap has served its original purpose, the garland can be kept and hung in a window for a beautiful reminder from a special day.


I rather fancy this, so I will be making a few more to keep these company in my craft room window. When a breeze is blowing I think they will be even more beautiful and eye catching!
