Leftover paper gets a fresh start when used to make decorations for a party. We used metallic paper to make streamers of shimmering circles that descend from above.
For a final bit of recycling, we grabbed small tart tins from the kitchen and used the shiny containers to hold tea lights.
Circle Streamers How-To
1. Spray pieces of card stock with spray adhesive on both sides; cover with wrapping paper.
2. Cut out graduated circles from wrapped card stock using an adjustable circle cutter (ours were 2 to 6 inches in diameter).
3. Punch a hole at the top and bottom of circles, except smallest one. For smallest circle, make a hole at top edge only. Connect circles using jump rings, placing largest circle at top and smallest at bottom. Repeat process to make more streamers. Use monofilament and a thumbtack to hang each streamer from ceiling.
