DIY Paper Craft Decorations
I had the pleasure of being shown how to make this heart garland by a person at work. She brought in the supplies and within minutes, she had the place looking so cute with just a few little touches. It is so easy to make this garland and you don’t have to go and buy it each year. Be creative and use both printed and colored paper to create a unique look. Use it for a backdrop for pictures. This would be great for a wedding or decorating your office or home. Let children decorate their rooms in the colors that they enjoy.
How to Make the Heart Garland
This is the cutter that makes all the magic possible. It can be used over and over. The cutter automatically cut a small hole on one side of the heart and an extended piece on the other side of the heart. This makes it possible for the hearts to easily hook together and stay hooked together. Martha Stewart Crafts 42-39010 Heart Garland Paper Punch, Punches 2.25 x 1.5-Inch Shape
