so sweet and amazing how varied the inside of the envelopes are no wonder you and Shona love them. Did you ever see her piece with security envelope inserts? L
Garlands also make everything sweet.

Oh no, have to write another comment despite the fact that I'v been a silent reader for so long. I love garlands and I love those security envelopes - why don't they do them like this over here in Germany...?!

Anna said...

I've been wanting to make a heart garland for awhile now but of course, haven't gotten around to it. Would love to win this and hang it above my bed. It's darling!

Hana said...

I love the inside of security envelopes and I love this!

This is my favorite so far, too. I think all those blues are so soothing.

Super cute-I made Oliver a banner with the letters of his name, a bird and a moon on it for Christmas-inspired by the banners you've made. Thanks for the inspiration!

a said...

every since your bookmaking class i've been saving all my security envelopes. however, i have yet to do a dahm thing with them...

radiantcrust said...

Okay .. I've been lurking long enough. I have to tell you that I've been totally inspired by this series and by your 20 ornaments in 20 days. I think it's time I said how you inspire me time after time to look at stuff around the house in a new way and *play * with it. The little felt hearts are to die for and the security paper heart banner put me over the edge. Thanks! :)

Knoopjes said...

This garland is the perfect combination of things I LOVE: hearts, bunting & envelopes! :)
Hope you have a great valentine this year!
