wishes and dreams garlands

I keep all my Anthropologie catalogs around for inspiration and like to keep them all intact but, also wanted to make some pretty paper garlands and just love all the colors and imagery in these pages. So, I used the pages where I didn't fancy the outfits that much and came up with these garlands which I am calling Wishes and Dreams. I had a little elf help me out with punching the circles. Actually, he willingly did almost all the punching . (It can be quite addictive). And, last night I sewed them and packaged them all up. I hung one on the mantle and brought a few to Mackey Blue this morning. They are about 6 feet long & make pretty sweet decor for the holidays.

They are so pretty! What a lovely idea. I have a little elf here who is also quite fond of paper punching - maybe I should put her to work?!

that is a great holiday idea for a fun project to do with the kids, although something tells me my two elves will punch out 3 circles tops.
