So, with Valentine's Day coming up, I decided to make her a what ended up being a fairly simple <<but cute>> heart garland.
To create each of the "flags" for the banner, I used some retired red and white woodgrain-patterned DSP. I thought the woodgrain would make a darling backdrop for the red and white hearts I added. I folded each flag in half, and inserted the length of red and white ribbon along the creases of each flag.
Hearts A Flutter Framelits enabled me to create the cute nested hearts on each flag. I inserted small (non-Stampin' Up!) jeweled brads in the center of each white heart.
Sarah and I happened to be on the phone when she opened the package containing her garland. She was delighted, and hung it up while we were still talking. I'm so happy she liked it!
