Back On Track

Hello again! I mentioned in an earlier post that I intended to purchase a paper flower punch. Well it finally arrived!...Along with my paper heart punch. :)

When I went shopping for the flower punch I came across a heart punch and had yet another wedding decor idea. I'm full of DIY travel themed wedding ideas lately! I stay awake all night thinking about it! Haha!

Anyways, Jimmy and I have decided to make paper heart map garland to string up at our reception and this is how I did it.

My tools Along with the flower punch I picked up some self-laminating paper to make the hearts a little thicker. They are now also water proof (just in case it rains...I am crossing my fingers that it doesn't!). After laminating the map, I used the punch to make the hearts.

Punch out the hearts

The hearts are two inches in diameter so I hope they are big enough. These pics will give you an idea of what it will look like.

My map hearts!

After all of the hearts are punched out I will string them up with heavy hemp twine, which I haven't had a chance to purchase yet. I've also thought about adding burlap flowers to the garland. We'll see how it goes!

As always, I will post pics of the garland once it is finished! I believe we are well on our way to having a very travel themed wedding! So excited! :)
