Don't forget once you've bought the pdf it's yours to print off as many times as you like! 

When your garland gets a bit too dusty and is beyond all hope of rescue (it happens in our house at any rate), or you need to cheer up a friend  - just get printing.

Going to a dinner party?  We think it would make a fun gift for your host - and be there next day to smile at while they are tackling all the dishes!
