Woven Heart Garland

Last week I shared a post about creating a woven heart with a braided bracelet die by designer Marisa Pawelko sold by Sizzix.  If you missed that post, you can click HERE for all of the details.  I decided to take that project to the next level by creating a garland of these woven hearts.


You will start with the braided bracelet die from the Marisa Pawelko line from Sizzix.  Cut several of these bracelet shapes in colors and patterned cardstock.  In my examples below I am using two different shades of pink so that you can see the weaving pattern.  Once you have the bracelet pieces cut from the cardstock, cut all of them in half as shown below.


Next, you weave the pieces together to form hearts.  


Glue down the ends and allow to dry.  
Cut off the excess to finish up the hearts.


Now you can string the hearts on a thin piece of ribbon, thread or string.


This is the perfect Valentine's Day item for the shelf in my craft room.
