heart shaped Surprise Soap
& heart Watercolor Garland
|as well as Valentine Beeswax Candles|
& an Inspiration Garland
Can I leave it at that? Nooooo. More craftiness must be done. So...
Today we made People We Love Garland
The supplies are easy to find: photos, ribbon, scissors, exacto knife, and a heart template. We used cookie cutters.
|If you want to do more than your immediate family but cannot find|
photos of the ones you love, try facebook, where you can usually
find photos of distant family and friends.
Simply trace & cut out hearts around your loves face then cut a slightly larger heart out of construction paper or scrapbook paper. To glue it on, I used a water/glue mix & applied it with a paintbrush so there would not be any goopy bumps. Cut a slit at the edge of each heart with your exacto knife then thread the ribbon through. (I found it easiest to use a plastic cross-stitch needle.)
|This one is a gift to a family member far away. Each person will sign |
their name on the back of their heart sending love and well wishes.
There you have it.
A garland of Lovely Loved Ones.
