Prima Lights: DIY Circles and Hearts Garland with Shari Carroll
Did you know that Simon Says Stamp has battery operated light sets from Prima in the store?? I was so excited when I saw these and had to try them. Since they are LED, they stay cool to the touch so you can decorate them however you’d like!
I did a couple garlands to go with my set of lights, the first one being die cut circles. I used the Stitched Circles dies and used 5 tones of papers that go well together. Once I had all my circles die cut, I used my sewing machine to stitch them together.
Next, I die cut some hearts from Prima papers that coordinate with the circles so I can use both garlands together. I used a Crop-O-Dile to punch holes in the hearts , then strung them onto twine.
These lights are perfect for areas without a power supply or outdoor decorating. I’ve shot a video of how they look with and without the garland. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
