I fell in love with the "Glittered Geometry Garland" at Leif, but decided I could make something similar at home.

First, I printed 3D shape templates (found here). Then I cut them out of glittered scrapbook paper using an X-Acto knife on a self-healing cutting mat.

After that, I made up the shapes securing all but one side with Scotch tape on the inside.

I strung the shapes together with gold embroidery thread and secured the thread at the corners of each shape with some hot glue.

Then I closed up the shapes, securing the final side of the shape with hot glue on a tab of paper.

The whole process took a few days, but I really like the end result, and I think it looks great on our tree.

I wasn't able to photograph every step because I mostly worked on it in the dark after work, but I'd be happy to answer any questions if you decide to make it.
