Hearty craft


A long weekend home allowed for more than usual time to get some crafting done. The girls and I decided to make heart chains and garland.

I sorted through my stash of scrapbooking paper and spent a loooonnnggg time cutting out dozens of hearts. One does not realize how time consuming cutting shapes from paper. I do have a paper punch that makes these perfect little hearts except there's something I like better about my 'ol uneven and imperfect hearts I cut. They just seem to have more character. I used the irregular hearts for the chains and the punch outs for a few of the garland. (those are not shown) I think they turned out very nice and it brings a cheerful look to the living room. Now only if I can keep the cat from playing with them. She can't help herself when it comes to ribbon and paper.
