You know me by now...I have a hard time throwing things away that could be repurposed or look like a potential craft. It's a sickness, I know! (I will say the decluttering has started now that we are past the wedding, and other things that interrupted my goals last fall!)
I had all these beautiful gold envelopes that the wedding replies came in and I couldn't bear to toss them - they cost us a pretty penny! So I decided to make a paper circle garland. It's mostly gold and some of them I cut have our address on the circle. I also had some nice cream paper so I used a little of that too to break up the gold-ness of the garland. After studying a few on pinterest, I decided to make it about 10 feet long so I knew I needed about 60 circles. I used my old Creative Memories circle cutter. Then I sewed them together on the sewing machine. Adds a little whimsy to my living room!
I made another to send to my girl. I hope she likes it when she realizes what it was made from!
