A Christmas String of Paper

I love strings of paper. I love making them and giving them away. If you've been a follower of this blog you probably have seen some versions. They are here,  here and here, if you haven't seen them before. Basically a string for each season, and all that was missing was the Christmas string.

This is the easiest and quickest craft (perfect for this time of the year).

What you'll need:


  • any type of paper - I've used old book pages, carta varese, japanese paper
  • Christmas stamps
  • hole punchers
  • thread and glue dots if you're not using the sewing machine
Arrange the cut outs however you like them, there is no wrong way of course. Glue or sew them.

Wrap them nicely and give them away. They are perfect to include with your Christmas card as they don't add any more weight or make the envelope bulky.

Wishing you a great start of the week, and of the month (of course).

  1. Love how you add the stamps on old paper books to make the whole garland more beautiful and poetic ! For these on the pics, did you stitch or glue them? Not sure if the glue will really hold on a baker twine...

    1. These I've sewn with the machine, but I've done some with the glue dots. I think baker's twine is too thick and the paper to delicate. I would just use any sewing or embroidery thread you have. Even a bit of masking tape will do - i've also used that before!

      I'm glad you liked them!
