I think the whole process is not so complicated. You need a strip of paper, the length you can choose by yourself, if you want you can glue a few strips. Just keep in mind that if you take too long strip, it will be difficult to cut after multiple folding.

So, we fold a strip of paper in the form of accordion. Draw the outline of the future shape and cut it out. Do not forget that the middle part can not be cut, because you will cut the garland into parts.
