Instructions

  1. Draw out a heart shape on a piece of paper the size that you want your hearts to be. (About 2”)
  2. Select the craft papers you wish to use and put 3 layers together with a different design on each.
  3. Draw round the heart template as many times as you can fit and cut out. (Depending on how long you want your garland to be – make sure you have enough hearts for the length).
  4. Place your hearts into stack of 3 – with two craft papers facing up and one on the back facing outwards (so you can see the design).
  5. IMG_5439 (1)Thread up your sewing machine and begin to stitch through the first heart, stitch a 2” gap then through the next heart.
  6. Continue to do this until you have no more hearts left.
  7. Punch a hole in the top heart and the bottom heart and tie a loop of baker’s twine (or ribbon) through. This will allow you to hang easily.
