Learn how to use your Cricut machine to turn a few sheets of cardstock and some embroidery floss, into the perfect no-sew paper garland!
Author: Beth Kingston


  • Cricut Explore Air (with Design Space) or Cricut Maker (available at Cricut, Michaels, and HSN)
  • Cricut Light Grip Mat
  • Three sheets of coordinating cardstock
  • Needle
  • Coordinating embroidery floss


  • Select a shape in Cricut Design Space (I selected an arrow from the Bits & Pieces collection and used the layer without the cut out) and cut multiple shapes from each color of cardstock. String each shape on to the embroidery thread with a needle.
  • Once all of the shapes have been strung you can separate the shapes evenly along the embroidery thread.
