I am not a scrapbooker but I have always loved all those pretty papers that you see at the craft store. I was determined to find a way to use some of them instead of my usual buying them and have them sit in a drawer or let my kids
I had noticed a lot of people making paper garlands during the Valentine's season so I thought I could use some of my paper to make a spring garland.
I love it. You'll have to forgive the photos. I have to learn how to get better pictures.
I was so excited to hang it up and share it with you that I haven't really finished my mantle yet. It's a little sparse. When I finish that I'll do another post.
For those that are interested the paper is called The Linen Closet Stack by DCWV. It was originally $19.99 at Hobby Lobby, but I used my 40% off coupon so it was about $12. I also found it on Amazon for $16 DCWV PS-005-00081 12 by 12 Linen Premium Stack GLTR. Then I went to Martha's site and used some templates from her various Easter projects for my egg, flower, and bunny shapes.
I won't lie. It took me most of an afternoon and evening to get all the shapes traced, cut out, and strung together and I have a feeling the blister on my thumb will be there for a few days, but I think it was worth it.
