{Use your kit scraps} Make easy garlands!

To continue working on our overflowing box of kit scraps, today, I will show you an easy way to make garlands. I just made this one for Halloween but a Christmas one would look great in the tree! Or wrapped around presents! The possibilities are endless and they are fun to make!
- pile of scraps
- circle punches of different sizes
- sewing machine
- distress ink (optional)
1/ Punch a bunch of circles out of your scraps in different sizes. Ink the edges if you'd like.
2/ Select them somewhat randomly and feed them in your sewing machine. They don't even have to be glued. Don't worry about centering them either. In my opinion, the imperfections add charm to this project.
Simple as that! Have fun!

I thought at first that you had threaded each set of circles but sending them through a sewing machine is even easier. thanks for the great idea!
