Shimmering Streamers

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.

  • Card stock

  • Spray adhesive

  • Wrapping paper


  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.
