Making Paper Garlands...

I had so much fun making these sweet Heart garlands!
I want to encourage you to give it a whirl...
They are so easy to make,
Easy Peasy I say...

I made this one in honor of my friend Pam's Birthday Party...

 As she is the one who taught me how to make one of these garlands.
She is so talented.!

You just sew these hearts together in a pattern that matches on both sides.
I had a pretty lace heart shaped doily for the first one I made,
 And I used that one for my center one!

Here is the one I made for another friend Lydia.
Visit her here:

I used a few different size's of heart shapes,
 And found different pretty paper designs,
Traced the heart pattern on the back side, then I cut them out.

Now, You sew them together on your sewing machine!

I wanted to share the full instructions with you ladies;
And here is a tutorial from my friends Blog;
