DIY Tutorial – Mini 8Bit Exploding Hearts Garland

January 28th, 2014
It's been awhile since I've made a new DIY tutorial!

Valentine's day is coming up soon!

I made this really easy and simple tutorial on some cute Valentine decor for your special day. The quote "You Make My Heart Explode" is from the Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt song called "Ride / Frindship"... Good song! Makes me feel happy.

Just follow the short video for instructions :)

Here are the hearts for you to cut out!


I'll actually be making one more DIY tutorial for Valentine's day soon. Hopefully I can get that out by next week! [EDIT] - If you happen to use this DIY tutorial, I'd love to see how you used them :)
