GIT’R’DONE: Alexander Girard’s paper girl garland

11 Dec

Paper+Dolls+Wall+Art+by+Alexander+Girard+for+Urban+OutfittersHere is an easy holiday garland you can make out of Girard’s popular paper girl design.

DSC_0047First get your image to the size you like and print it out on printer paper. Not too small – because it’ll be tough to cut.
I decided to go with 5 inches. Don’t worry if you get it a lil’ pixelated on the print-out –  iz just going to be used as a stencil.

DSC_0048Cut out the image, or slice out using an X-acto knife.

DSC_0055Trace the image onto the back of the paper of your choice. Wrapping paper, craft paper, whatever. Just make sure it’s a little bit taller than your tracing (in my case, approximately 7″) and as long as you want your garland to be, around 20-30″ unless your paper is so thick that it would be difficult to cut through.


DSC_0056Fold the paper into itself and repeat. I did this about ten times, because if you fold too much iz too hard to cut.

DSC_0058There it is.

DSC_0060Cut along the lines, making sure the dress and arms still connect with one another.
