I love it when I come across a Dollar Tree find and turn it into a home decor project or gift.  This Valentine decor piece was designed for the Residents at our local nursing home.  We will be visiting them this week and they each get to create with us.  This is a truly rewarding experience. We laugh, create, and share throughout the afternoon.  We’ve made friends with so many of the lovely ladies and gentlemen.

The color palette for this piece is Daffodil Delight, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette.  I was amazed how closely our Stampin’ UP! colors matched this sweet little hanger.  I replaced the original ribbon hanger with a 15″ piece of our beautiful Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon.

By punching nine images from Daffodil Delight with the Daisy Punch, I was able to create three of these lovely flowers.  The center was cut from Cherry Cobbler, using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the faceted gem really makes it pop.  The Leaf Punch is one of my new go-to punches.  I used Always Artichoke and punched six images, two for each flower.

The Sweet and Sassy framelits came in handy to create the trio of hearts.  And I just knew it needed some texture, so I used the Quilt Top Embossing Folder to do that. I love that stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon and thought it added just the right touch to the hearts.

To finish things off, I used the Bow Builder Punch and created the bow from Pink Pirouette card stock.  Be sure to check out my video tutorial and create one of these for someone special in your life.
