DIY: Paper starburst garland

Soooooo, many moons ago, I started hoarding paper samples, magazines, old books, etc. Then I got this 2" circle paper punch. Now I hoard circles.  :/

Paper punch addict.

I recently used some of these circles in my paper ornament ball tutorial. Today's crafty project is a paper starburst garland. Depending on the paper color and print, this can be holiday themed or just every day decor.

Greetings cards or cardstock

Fold the circles in half and really make sure you have a distinct crease. I used 12 circles for my particular garland.

Choose a pattern and begin gluing the backs of each half circle together until you form a complete ball. 

String them along the ribbon or string of your choice and display!
