CropChocolate Valentines Day Blog Hop! :)

welcome blog hoppers!!

if you've randomly come across my blog and want to join the hop, please start at Beth's Blog and make your way through!

thanks for joining us in our Valentines Day Blog Hop!  you've just seen some AWESOME cutes on Karen's Blog - isn't she awesome??  

for my project, I had this darling little pink Christmas tree that I didn't get put up in time for Christmas.  being it was pink, I knew I had to Valentines Day it up!

There are 3 parts to this tree, and they are EASY PEASY!!  For all of the decorations (except the ornaments) I used My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad of Love Me.  

For the Tree Topper, I used my Slice and Applique Basics card to cut 2, 4" hearts.  I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink (my go to brown ink!) and then using my sewing machine, I sewed them together leaving about 1/2 in on each side at the bottom in order to place on the tree.  I took Crystal Stickles and put them on the outside as well to add some bling. :)

Next I created the paper garland.  I cut random pieces of the papers in 1(ish) inch increments.  Wrapped into a circle, and stapled.  Just like you did in elementary school.

Lastly, I did the ornaments.  All they are is 3 red, white and pink buttons strung together on some random twine. :)

You could really do this for all different seasons and holidays!  A fun way to add some fun spirit into your home. :)
