Cupid’s arrow hit me in the decorate muscle, and I’ve been making paper hearts zealously ever since. I stacked and strung some paper hearts and scrapbook embellishments together for this pink, red and white Valentine’s Day heart garland. It is quick, easy to make, and I am digging it. See how to make your own…
Red, white and pink cardstock paper hearts
Valentine’s day themed scrapbooking embellishements (I got felt sticker hearts and pop up hearts at Michael’s)
Glue dots or other adhesive
Twine or other string
Adhere smaller heart embellishments onto larger cardstock hearts.
Create enough layered hearts to make your garland the length needed for its intended space.
Take a leftover scrap bigger background heart, fold in half and hole punch on outer edge (both sides at same time in same spot since folded in half) where you want to thread for hanging.
Unfold and use as template for placement of holes in layered hearts by lining up on back of layered heart and using holes as guide for hole puncher.
Lay out the hearts and move them around until you are happy with the order.
String and hang!
