A Rainbow Colored Birthday Garland

In preparation for an upcoming rainbow themed birthday party, I have been busy creating decorations, planning menus, and devising games.  The first item to check off my quickly growing list is the birthday garland.  Last night, I spent the evening making this one.

 A picture showing a large portion of the garland...

This is a super easy project to complete.

The supplies...

paper (I used glittered card stock for that extra shine)
white paper
fishing line

To make...

Using a pattern, I cut the glittered card stock into pocket shapes
and a white rectangle with a scalloped the bottom edge.

Then, I fastened the white rectangle to the top of the colored card stock with glue.
Using letter stickers, I spelled out the birthday message.

Next, I punched two holes at the top of each letter
and threaded a matching ribbon through each card and tied a bow.

After I put the cards in order, I threaded the fishing line through them to hang the garland.
