DIY: Easy Round Paper Garland

I made this for my friend, Christine's, baby shower. This round paper garland is really quick and easy. If you have large hole punches in various sizes it's even easier - but those get expensive. We used three sizes - my 1.5in punch and then hand cut the two larger sizes.

What you need:

assorted paper - great if you have scraps.  I used heavy weight and cardstock.
sewing machine
scissors or round punches
parchment paper (optional)
Leave a long length of thread when you start so you have space to hang it. I placed a small piece of parchment paper underneath the first few circles to get the thread going without getting caught. (But I'm using a very old machine so yours might be fine without!) The parchment paper rips right off.

Continue feeding circles under the needle. You can leave a little space between them if you prefer. When you're done leave extra on the end for hanging. And that's it! Easy!
If you make a smaller version you can use them to wrap presents.
