ten garlands in ten days: fingerprint hearts

This happy garland can be easily be made in a day. All you need is sturdy white paper, ink pads, scissors, yarn, glue, and a paper trim punch. 

Create fingerprint hearts by pressing your finger into an inkpad and then stamping your fingerprint onto white paper. Overlap and position the second print to create a heart shape. I used my thumb for this part. Use scissors to trim hearts into rectangles and scallop the bottom using a paper punch. Trim sides to your preference and get read to galrand it all up.

Fold over the top part of each flag just enough to hold your yarn. Arrange flags face down and add your glue. Nudge a long length of yarn onto each flag, making sure it is hugging the glue and wait for it to dry.

Once dry, trim yarn ends, add loops and hang in a happy space! Enjoy!
