Today’s project features a sweet tiny paper house garland. I made mine in classic black and white to go with any season, but because the main component is a paper cutting die, you can choose any color palette you would like! It would be darling in pastels, or a wood-grain patterned paper. Really the options are endless.
- Momenta Small House Craft Die
- Square Paper Punch
- Round Hole Punch – 1/8 inch
- Black Textured Cardstock
- White Textured Cardstock
- Black and White Baker’s Twine
- Permanent Multi Liquid Adhesive
I was completely in love with the detail of this die!
Using a 1/8″ hole punch, create holes on both sides of the house shape where the roof is pointed.
Decide how long you would like your garland to be, and cut your baker’s twine accordingly.
Then, using some packing tape, roll the end of the twine tightly with tape. Trim the tape.
Then string your first house. Make sure you face all of the doors of the houses the same direction. Tie a knot on the other side of the house. This will prevent your houses from sliding up and down the twine when you hang your garland.
Definitely a fun addition to my paper crafting tools!
