Valentine's Garland

I LOVE Valentine's Day. It is a day for expressing and celebrating love; it's just a happy day! It also gives me a chance to put lots of beautiful girly hearts around the house! Ellen and Naomi helped me put this heart garland together the other day.

We used various red and pink sheets of our scrapbooking paper. Some of it was actually Christmas paper, but worked great for Valentine's.

Then we cut out the hearts using some cookie cutters as our stencils.

We punched two holes in each one ...

... and strung them on our ribbon. It was a lot of fun, and gave us a good chance to talk about patterns!

I love that idea. Being the only girl I don't get to put out lots of girly things all the time, but Valentines gives me a perfect excuse.

I am so going to steal you idea some day, just so you know. That looks like so much fun! You are awesome! Love you lots!

Oh my heart (every pun intended, of course)!! That is so stinkin' cute! I love that something that easy can also be that CUTE. And reusable!!!!

Please tell the girls I am impressed.
