Sometimes it feels good to make something just for us.
So for the day of love I made us some scrap hearts to hang on the white branches
on the dining room mantle.
They are just about the only decoration that I have out for today.
But I think they do the trick.
I made the birds last year and put them back out for today.
They are made from script paper and have a tiny banner hanging from
their beaks that says I Do with little hearts.
They have turned pink do to using mod podge on top of
an ink jet print but for today that works!
so this is how I did it...
I put strips of lace on top of a piece of cheesecloth that was
on top of a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.
Then I sewed them across the paper.
I turned the paper over and drew hearts on the back of it.
I then cut the hearts out, and glued them to a piece of
scrapbook paper. I did this because you would be able
to see the backsides in the mirror.
Then I hot glued jewels and aluminum letters and numbers to them,
all things that mean something to us.
There are 7 of us, and X and an O for hugs and kisses,
612 for our address and the frozen charlotte well because,
who doesn't love a frozen charlotte?
Happy Valentines Day Everyone!
