Paper Chains / Banners / Garlands

Despite my not so stellar success (so far), I enjoy paper crafts. Here are a few stringy-type projects that I find inspirational.
Krista at Krista Sew Inspired made a banner from paper stars:
This machine-sewn paper heart technique by Hey Cherry (below) solves one of my problems very nicely. I’d like to recycle magazine pages as crafts materials, but often the paper is so thin that one layer won’t hold up. If you stitched several pages together along the outside of your shape, it makes a sturdier layer.
Found via Kim Myles.
Benita also sews layers of paper together, but as box toppers:
Don’t you just love that paper bird garland on the door:
This image comes from the British Heart Home online magazine. It’s a new acquaintance for me, but so far I like it! They also have a promising blog. I’m always on the lookout for inspiring sources for European decor.
I’m fascinated by the construction of this star garland:
Found on design*sponge; unfortunately they don’t give a source!
Jenny posted a pic of this slightly different take on the paper circle chain, but I can’t find the source for it either.
Hope your week has started off nicely!
