I started with the square origami paper and then cut them in half, using my paper cutter. One could also fold them if you wanted your garland to be two-sided. I stacked them up according to the in order in which I wanted them to appear on the garland.
Then, I ran them through the sewing machine using a simple straight stitch through the middle of the triangle. I used festive gold thread to complement the gold theme throughout the origami paper. Be sure to leave a little space between each piece of paper to allow for movement and hanging abilities of the garland.
The finished design looks festive, though I am thinking that this garland plus the ornaments may be a bit much. Like I said, I am still figuring out how things work in this new place – perhaps the garland will find a new home today. Sometime in the next few months that chandelier will get a makeover. I have bright plans for it.
