Happy Day

Welcome to the Practical Scrappers Specialty Team Blog Hop!
Chevrons are such a fun trend. Have you ever realized how many shapes are really chevrons? There is the typical 45° angle or the zig zag pattern but what about the rest? Arrows, hearts, the letter X, stars, angel get the idea.
For my project I punched several 1inch strips of cardstock with a decorative corner punch to create the majority of my chevrons. I choose a punch with heart shapes to further the theme, then used an alternative punch for the top portion of the dress form. To keep all the purists happy I added cork chevrons as well.
