I had seen this idea for a super cute and easy heart garland that I knew I wanted to try before next Valentine's Day. (Not very ambitious of me, I know.) It requires a heart-shaped hole-punch, though, (which I don't have and would need to spend $9.99 on, according to Michael's) or lots of cutting. I had scrapped the idea until I saw these on a little shelf at the end of an aisle in Michael's:
They were 99 cents a bag and then on clearance for 40% off.
So, they were practically free.
I brought them home, found a needle and thread, and got to garlanding...
So, for under six bucks I have new holiday decorations to pull out next Valentine's Day and Easter. And I made them myself!
I just hope I remember them NINE MONTHS from now when I actually need them....
