Welcome to Day 20!
many years ago, a sweet and very excited little artist came home from school
and showed her sisters, brother, and mommy how to make hearts out of paper.
bright construction paper was precisely cut and folded and woven together,
just as she had been taught at school that day by her artistic teacher.
we had hours of fun making hearts, used them on our Christmas tree,
and then kept the red and white ones up as decor in our home until Valentine's Day.
(i still have those hearts in a box)
ever since, i've used woven paper hearts in my Valentine's Day decorating...
[traditionally known as Swedish Hearts]
instead of making them from construction paper,
now i use vintage papers from books and sheet music
they tuck into flower arrangements, dangle from ribbons, dance across inspiration boards,
my Swedish Hearts tutorial appears in the current Winter issue of
Creating Vintage Charm Magazine
and is now available here on the HOMEWARDfound blog 'Tutorials for Every Season' Page
