These simple two-colored garlands look like a compact pile of square folds but open out into soft twists of color.
All you need:
Crepe paper (in two colors)
Cut strips of crepe paper about 7.8 cm/3inches wide in two different colors.
Hold the ends of the two strips at right angles and staple together.
Fold the lower (here yellow) strip squarely over the upper (pink here) strip. Keep the fold steady with the fingers of your spare hand.
Now fold the lower (pink) strip over the upper (yellow) strip. Continue folding each strip of paper over the other in turn, making a neat square stack of folds.
When all the paper is used, staple the two colors together in the last fold.
When ready to hang the garland, lift one end and the folds will open out.
