tutorial::easy peasy heart garland

i'm not a huge decorator for the seasons, but even i can't pass up a garland
for $1.50 at walmart you can buy this package of six hearts. go get you some of those...
now if you are crazy like me and you have issues with the shape of your hearts you'll need this step. cut out desired shape of heart.
much better, now make two slits on either side of your heart. and get you some cute ribbon...
string through your ribbon and tada! you are done.
super easy super fast and super cheap.

love this. And I love that those cheesy round hearts annoyed you... I can so relate to the instability-personality-disorder that causes that:)
