Have you noticed how very popular paper garlands are lately? I've been seeing a wide variety - from super-cute to elegant - in magazines, print ads, and stores. Definitely not just for Christmas, they're always perfect as party decor, but now are also being hung as eye-catching, year-round displays in homes.If you're looking for fresh ideas to decorate your child's room or even your mantel, June Gilbank, co-owner of one of my favorite paper-themed blogs, Folding Trees, has just written her first book, Paper Chains and Garlands. June walks us, step-by-step, through the satisfying process of making our own. Released by Barnes and Noble in a nifty book/kit format that includes patterns, instructions, and pretty paper sheets and rolls, Paper Chains and Garlands is available at Barnes and Noble stores and via their website.
