How to Make a Mini Heart Garland

 My super talented friend Sarah has a handful of lovely Valentines Day crafts on her site, including this lovely mini heart garland template that's available as a download.
You can choose any (or all!) of these hearts in a pdf, and then turn them into a simple garland with just the help of a needle and thread. I love the one in the middle with the tiny polka dots and plan to make a few cards out of a sheet that I printed off. I'm thinking an abstract assortment of hearts on a plain white or kraft paper card will be a sweet way to share a little love.
I particularly enjoy these hearts because they prove—just like my invitation bunting—that you can do a lot with basic materials like paper and scissors. And sometimes, remembering that is the most empowering thing!
