hearts, beads, twine and hole puncher

First I cut 4 fairly large hearts from scrapbook paper

I like neutrals so I'm using a scrapbook paper with birch trees, there are so many beautiful choices.

I cut out hearts from scrapbook paper then folded them back and forth from one end to the other to make folds. 

I used a small office hole punch to put holes on both sides of the hearts. 

Now I am ready to string the hearts on cotton twine

I alternated the hearts with a wooden bead all the way across the twine.

I used a tiny dot of hot glue to hold the hearts and beads from sliding around on the twine.

You can hang this pretty garland on your mantel, a window, or on a chalkboard like I did.
