This lovely garland is made of paper hearts, hand punched from the pages of book about King Edward III. Each little heart is 1" across, and there are 100 of them on approximately 9.5' of thread. They have been run through my sewing machine and there is enough thread at the end of each garland to tie together or hang up. There are 3 garlands here. That's almost 30 feet of decorations! Don't forget the matching confetti!! https://www.etsy.com/listing/122733138/heart-confetti-book-page-confetti…
