Leftover Paper: Paper Strip Garland + Treat Toppers

Ever wonder what to do with your leftover party invites? Hmmmm? Well, wonder no more. I have an answer. Don’t just toss them… make a paper strip garland and treat toppers! It takes barely any time and is way too simple.


– Paper (leftover invites, scraps of paper, maybe magazines?)

– String (length is up to you)

– Toothpicks

– Hot glue gun + glue sticks

– Paper cutter (saves lots of time)

– 30 minutes of your time

Treat Toppers:

– Cut out as many strips as you need (2 needed for each topper) at 4 inches x 1/2 inch.

– Glue two of those strips together (with the pretty designed paper sides facing out).

– Bend the glued strip of paper in half… with a slight angle to it (see photo below).

– Glue the folded strip onto a toothpick.

– That’s it!

Paper Strip Garland:

– Cut out as many strips as you need (2 needed for each strip) at 4 inches x 1/2 inch.

– Laying one paper strip flat, squirt a small glue strip on the paper and over the string, quickly lay the second strip of paper on that. Continue on with this until you’re happy with the length of your garland. I spaced my pieces roughly 2 inches apart.

– You’re done! Now it’s time to hang. I suggest twisting the string a bit to get the papers to stick out at different angles.
