While I am always trying to come up with creative, new ways to decorate for our parties, these box-folded streamers are an old favorite. They look super complicated, but are really are so easy and fun to make. I actually must give credit to my father for teaching me how to make them when I was a very little girl. I can vividly remember sitting with him at the kitchen table surrounded by piles of crepe paper streamers. :-)
These really are very simple to make and require only the most basic of folding skills, but they do require a little patience. I made the ones shown here while catching up on some episodes of House of Cards!
To make them, all you'll need are some rolls of crepe paper streamers, tape, and your own two hands!
To begin, select two rolls of streamers - they can both be the same color or you can use two different ones for a fun effect. Trim the edges of the streamers so they are perfectly straight and then line them up perpendicularly to one another. Secure with some tape (or staple).
Next, fold the bottom streamer up and over the top one and crease...
Continue to fold the two streamers back and forth over one another...
You'll end up with a neat little stack of folded streamers...
When you are satisfied with the length (or sick of folding), trim the streamers and secure the ends with more tape. Release you little folded piles and you will now have a pretty box-folded streamers!
Aren't they fun!
