Paper Hearts....

Let me say I am not crafty, Tiffany and crafty do not go together. I love to cook and bake, I enjoy arranging flowers, I like to wrap gifts in cellophane and ribbons, and I have even been known to paint an old piece of furniture, but crafty, I am not. June, on the other hand would do crafts 24/7, paper, tape, glue, scissors...repeat. That being said, I am always looking for little projects for her....I personally love all of the paper garlands that I have been seeing on Etsy, Pinterest, and various blogs, so today, paper garland it was. June had her chance to cut and I got to take photos! First we gathered supplies: twine, clothespins, and scrap booking paper that thought it might not ever see the light of day again.

Once everything was ready June started cutting...

It was a challenge to keep her hair out of the scissors path...YIKES!

When she was done cutting we headed up to her room where she began to arrange, rearrange, arrange some more.

We even worked on patterns. Did I mention we rearranged?

As you can see by her sweet smile she was happy with the outcome!

We had one heart left over and pinned it to her lamp....

Love that sweet smile! And her project came out beautifully. I am not a crafty gal either, though I do enjoy the many beautiful projects on Pinterest. But, when it comes to actually creating them, I'd rather bake cookies ;)
