It's true, I have a hard time tossing out old magazines. Stacks of magazines make me sad because I know that they could become everything from bowls of paper beads, a super cool collage or even a Valentine's Day"I HEART YOU" Garland. For my Valentine's Day party this year, I'm decorating with tons of garlands made from magazine pages and a few pieces of red paper. Instead of buying tons of glitter hearts and pink streamers I'm going to use what I have to make the party magical. Even if you're having a small dinner for two, these paper garlands will make the night a little more special. Just don't get them too close to your candles. Happy Valentine's Day!
