D.I.Y. Wednesday: Heart Garland

This D.I.Y. Wednesday, love is in the air … no, really. It’s everywhere; even dripping from the ceiling in the form of this gorgeous heart garland, made from a Mini Notebook and hung with care. Sweet, isn’t it?

Heart Garland

heart garland 1. What you’ll need: A Mini Notebook with Pocket and a stapler

2. Tear out pages along the perforated line. (If the pages are used, please be sure to recycle them. If they are still blank, you can save them for notes or another D.I.Y.)

 Separate the colored paper margins from the spiral. Try not to rip them. (Hint: Pull them out of the spiral only a few at a time. This is much easier after you take off the covers and folder.)

3. Fold the colored strips in half. Connect the ends of the strip and bring them in to meet and form a heart shape. Add the bottom folded part of another strip in-between the the two pieces you are holding together. Staple.

4. Repeat the process, forming a long chain. Then hang!
