Too many time consuming (crochet) wips can be quite overwhelming at times.
I therefore like the distraction (and satisfaction) of a fun and quick little in-between project.
This week’s kick-off by the very lovely and very talented Allison Sadler (co-owner of the The People Shop) of “Make it sewcial Mondays” really made me want to make my own paper letter garland instantly.
So, I got my inexpensive HEMA- and “mat stacks”-paper out and got going.
Allison says in her tutorial she cut the letters free hand. I knew I would not be good at that and quickly found a link to a free printable alphabet. I downloaded the letters I needed, printed them on plain paper, cut them out and used them as a template for my cheery letters: my “h”, “a”, “p”, “p”, and “y” were born.
This was such a fun, “happy” project. Just think of all the possibilities ….
Make your own Christmas, birthday or whatever festive occasion-garland!
And ….. I am so HAPPY with my paper letter garland! I’ve hung it on one of the walls in my craftroom and it makes me smile every time I see it …..
Here’s to happy crafting!
