Well my overkill craft dilemma ( otherwise known as my OCD ) has gone into full gear this last week and I've gone banner or garland crazy
( what's the difference between the two - does anyone know? )
This latest one was created for my daughter's girlfriend's baby's ( ok that's just too many apostraphes for me to handle in the morning ) first birthday party - which falls on Valentine's day !
I'm not crafty - really I'm not - so you won't be seeing a lot of this type of thing here - except I bought a pad of construction paper so God only knows what's going to be happening - the scissors are flying my friends LOL !
First I cut out my hearts - making 2 holes on top to thread the ribbon through.
Next I cut out 2 little pieces of ribbon and glued them on
Next came a few layers of foam hearts that I've had for well over a hundred years - I actually sewed these on to the construction paper
and then covered that thread with stick on " diamonds " because they're a girl's best friend - even if she's only turning 1 ( again with the apostraphe's ??? )
AND the teddy bear ones I'm working on now
Oh and did I mention the tag garland I made a couple of weeks ago?
John thought this next one was a bunch of fancy A's................. please tell me you recognize it
Does this mean it'll be a banner year for Simply Vintageous ???
Or a garland year ?
Anyway I have to run because I just had the most incredible idea for another one !!!
Have a wonderful day everyone
