Punched Paper Circle Garland Stamped with PSA Essentials

With the array of scrapbooking paper available, using it to craft is an easy and inexpensive way to add color and stylish designs to any project. I gave a peek at the paper garland I made when I posted Monday about my new decoupaged plates I made for my kitchen.


The paper garland was incredibly easy to put together and adds a little more pattern and color to window. Since I don’t really have any orange in my decor, I incorporated the festive color by simply stamping a few circles with my new PSA Essentials kit.

Materials Needed:
Scrapbooking Paper
Paper Punch
PSA Essentials Peel & Stick Stamps {optional}
Thread, String or Embroidery Floss
White Glue

Additional Materials Needed: Brush


Begin by punching out several circles from various sheets of scrapbooking paper. I used a 1 1/2 inch circle punch, though any size or shape can be used.


Since I only wanted a touch of orange in the garland I used the PSA Essentials Peel & Stick Stamper to stamp some of the circles. The peel and stick stamper is such a versatile crafting tool and is not only a personalized stamp, but a interchangeable stamper as well, as the center and frame can be quickly changed into a number of designs. I used the PSA Originals rosetta pack for my design. What I love about this self inking stamp is the multicolor ink pads that can be purchased {see the orange and black}. I’ll be sharing a little more about PSA Essentials tonight!! {hint, hint}


Using the alignment tool, simply set the chosen designs in place and pick them up with the stamper body.


Stamp several designs on a sheet of cardstock and punch out. {the design can easily be alined by turning the punch upside down as shown above}


Once all your circles are punched it is now time to assemble the garland. Lay one circle face down and brush on a light coat of white glue, ensuring the entire surface is covered.


Set the string on top the glue, making sure it is centered right in the middle of the circle. {a light weight string works best – such as thread or embroidery floss}


Take a second circle and set on top, applying a little pressure to ‘seal’.


Move along down the string, repeating the process, until you have reached your desired length. I simply used my finger as a guide to measure between each set of circles.


Super quick, fun, and something you can get the little ones involved with – a huge help when punching and stamping multiple circles!


I just adore the little touch it adds to my window showcasing the decoupaged plates. Simple inexpensive Halloween decor…festive too!

Stay tuned for more about PSA Essentials tonight ~ Enjoy!
