As my paper was long, I accordion fold the paper length wise. I got three heart ribbons which was good. This turned out to be a long and at the end a family project. My daughter got one ribbon to decorate which was torn a part heart by heart. She had lots of fun doing that. And the other two happened to be a family fun project. Daddy came home and he started painting and stamping with us. Son was so impressed that daddy too, could paint and be silly and make messes with paint.

The ribbons turned out as we expected, fun and colorful and every time we look at them we remember the good time we had together making them.

Crafts can be funny and imperfect but the time you had making them is worthless.

Be creative and have fun.

Until later,
