Valentine Wall Hanging

Hello Everyone
I hope you had a great weekend. I worked on the wall hanging I showed in my last video. It is from a book called Flower Power Paper Crafts By Julie Hickey. It was published in the UK in 2008. I hope you can still find a copy of the wonderful book. There are several cards in this book that are fantastic.
  She used several punches and an oval cutter to make her wall hanging. I used my Cricut and a few carts.

Here is what I cut:
Hanger ( use the inside of the hanger) cut from Straight From The Nest at 7 1/4 inches
Oval cut 2 times from George at 6 inches
Hearts ( use the shift heart) cut 6 times from George at 4 inches
Flowers small cut 12 times at 2 1/2 inches from Picturesque
              Large cut 4 times at 3 1/2 inches from Picturesque
Girl and Boy cut twice from A Child's Year at 4 inches
If you do not have these carts. Look around on the carts you do have. These are basic cuts. I'm sure you have some that will work just fine.
    I cut and assembled the wall hanging so when it turned you would see the design on both sides. I strung it together with pink and white yarn. I used wooden buttons from my stash in the center of each flower, tied with yard. The pattern paper I used from from the Linens and Lace stack from Joann's.
   This wall hanger would also be adorable in traditional Valentine colors. I can see it made with a different cut for the oval to celebrate a baby's birth as a mobile. I love home decor that has so many applications.
Here is a pic of the original wall hanging from the book.
