A couple weeks ago, my good friend Yumi asked me to help plan a Valentine's Day potluck. In preparation, we hit up multiple thrift stores in the hopes of finding anything that looked like it belonged on the set of Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Having promised to make some valentine garlands, we stopped by Michael's to stock up on crafts. Originally, I had imagined making a heart garland similar to this and that. Even though I had come home with an arsenal of cutesy ribbon, sequence, and scrap book paper, I didn't have a clue to what I was actually going to make. After procrastinating all week, I finally sat down on Friday night and this is what I churned out. More photos of the party to come!
