 Paper crafts for kids: party light garland tutorial

Create your own string of lights for your next party.
You will need: 
Eight 3″ X 5″ rectangles of fabric
Three yards of ribbon
Black Sharpie marker
Ink Pads
Starch
To Make:
1.  Iron fabric rectangles with starch to give them a little stiffness.
2.  Print the party light pattern below.

 

3.  Trace party light pattern onto each fabric rectangle using a black Sharpie marker.  Use a lightbox or a sunny window to make tracing easier.
4.  Brush the edge of a colored ink pad directly on the fabric to give each light a colored “glow”.
5.  Sew lights to ribbon.  Start sewing two feet from the end of the ribbon.  Leave five inches between each light.

6.  Hang and enjoy your party!
