Etceteras: twine hearts

More Valentine fun. I made these little twine wrapped hearts with the intention of making a garland. I’m still figuring out how I want to finish up the garland.

In the meantime, I thought they would be fun to use as embellishments for packages and other goodies.

Give your sweetheart a message in a bottle. Use a recycled bottle and add a fun label. Cork the bottle with a rolled up piece of corrugated cardboard.


This label is courtesy of the Graphics Fairy. If you haven’t visited the Graphics Fairy – head on over. The site is brimming with vintage graphics, labels and clip art.

The twine wrapped heart also makes a nice embellishment on a gift package.

Now, I need to finish up that garland.
