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!

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! 🙂
