Heart Garland

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all have enjoyed the holiday season.  I can't believe how fast this year went by. 
For my project today, I skipped right to Valentine's Day.  This is my favorite holiday for crafting. 
I made a heart garland to show you guys today.  It's so easy to make.
You will need....
1.  Some die cut hearts.  I cut mine with my Cricut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 3.5"h.
2.  A solid pink paper and a pattern paper.  I used Echo Park "Be Mine"
3.  Some ink for the edges of your pattern paper.  I used Tim Holtz "Soot"
4.  Your favorite adhesive to adhere the two hearts together.
5.  A hole puncher

After you layer your hearts, punch a hole in the upper corners to thread your ribbon.

I used this beatuiful black double faced satin ribbon.  I love how it contrasts with the pink and ties in with grays on the pattern paper.  This is a quick and easy would make a great classroom or mantle decoration.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
