Gather embellishments for Valentine garland


Gather embellishments for your fabric and paper strips.  This a great opportunity to use leftover bits and pieces from other projects.  I cut hearts from my felt scraps, and used letter stickers from my craft stash.  Hint: Letter stickers on fabric may need an extra dot of glue to secure.

Decorate garland strips


Once the strips are decorated, thread ribbon or twine through the top holes to create the garland.  Extra plain strips of your paper or fabric make an excellent filler to make the garland the length you need.  Leave an extra foot or so of ribbon on each end to tie the finished garland in place.
