I found this tutorial online a while ago on the Domesticali Blog and have kept it on the back burner for ages. I thought I would give it a go this week as I thought it would be nice to sell some Festive Decorations at my up and coming craft fairs and these would compliment my Paper Garlands very well.
They’re easy to make and the online tutorial is easy to follow – so why not give it a go – I did and here are the results.
I’ve chosen to make these all from envelopes with interesting security patterns as I have so many of them thanks to the regular donations from Margaret and Colin’s mum. They’re a little tricky to make initially, but I soon got used to what I had to do and it got easier and easier.
I’ve still got to add thread, but I do have a huge reel of thin blue ribbon that I discovered in a charity shop ages ago and I might use that.
They do take a while to make though as you need to cut all the strips out first, then do all the folding and then construct them, so still pondering over the price, but I think I will sell them in packs of 5 or 10 rather than individually.
