One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make It Monday #80: Making Garland

Ashley's our Make-It-Monday Gal this week as she shares her tips for making any shape into a trendy garland to put on your projects. We love anything that makes dies and stamps more versatile, so this tip is right up our alley.
This is the card I made using this 'garland' technique...Since I needed a baby boy card, I thought I would pull out Sweet Baby Stamps and ink up the elephant...and they are all tied together with bows at the tail!  I used the star die for the elephants to walk on...thanks for taking a look!
