I was inspired by a wonderful garland on the How About Orange? blog. She made a similar garland out of stiffened fabric. It's just beautiful. I wanted it!!! Since it's a busy week for me, and I didn't have time to visit the fabric store - I sifted through some scrapbooking paper that I already had on hand. I made the heart shapes with a paper punch, and then sewed the hearts together with a sewing machine. (Frankly, the sewing machine is only out because my daughter ripped holes in the knees of her winter PJ's and I can't locate another pair in her size - spring clothes are out in the stores!) Then, because I didn't think about sewing the string of hearts together first, I used a hole punch to connect the hearts with a ribbon.
How About Orange? The fabric is so pretty and I love that the hearts are more demensional with extra layers.
